On 5 and 6 July the Zurbarán Centre will host a two-day student-led symposium showcasing innovative doctoral research in Iberian and Latin American art and visual culture.  The presentations explore a wide variety of topics across all periods from the middle ages to the twenty-first century. They address important questions relating to art and politics, the circulation of art and artefacts, visual traditions across different media and periods, identity issues, cultural heritage, memory and modernity.

The event brings together students from eight institutions: Durham University, Edinburgh College of Art, Technische Universität Dresden, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Universidad Internacional de Catalunya, Universität Hamburg, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds.

The symposium also features two invited keynote speakers: Dr Amanda W. Dotseth, Curator at the Meadows Museum in Dallas, and Dr George Flaherty, Associate Professor in Art History at the University of Texas at Austin. The student presentations and the keynote lectures will be followed by questions and answers. The aim is to stimulate intellectual debate and connections among emerging and established scholars engaged in Iberian and Latin American art.

The event has been organised by a group of doctoral students at Durham University and Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with the Zurbarán Centre.

We are grateful to the Embassy of Spain for their support of this event.
