Columbia Summer Session Lecture Preview: American Art in a Global Context
Join us for a unique preview of Columbia University Summer Session courses through our special multi-part lecture series. In this event, Page Knox, Ph.D., Lecturer in Art History and Archaeology, will examine American Art in a Global Context through an examination of painting, sculpture, decorative arts, photography, fashion, and visual culture in the United States from 1750 to 1914. The class will also consider how American art participated in the revolutions and reforms of the nineteenth century, and how events of the period continue to impact the U.S. today.
Page Knox is an adjunct professor in the Art History Department of Columbia University, where she received her Ph.D. in 2012. She works contractually in a variety of capacities at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, giving public gallery talks and lectures in special exhibitions as well as the permanent collection, teaching classes at the museum, and leading groups for Travel with the Met. She is a contributing author for a recently released textbook on the History of Illustration. Knox also teaches summer courses at Columbia that focus on American Art and Trans-Atlantic Exchange during the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.
Representatives from the Columbia University Summer Session and from the Admissions team will also be available to answer questions about how students may apply and enroll as visiting or current Columbia students.
