A gathering of scholars celebrating beauty
Our 2013 conference was so successful and we had so many requests for a repeat performance that we decided to host it, again! Sam Houston State University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences is indeed delighted to host the Second International Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Thought. We are inviting all interested scholars, students, and members of the community to participate in this event, a scholarly gathering focusing on all aspects of medieval and renaissance culture and thought.
Dr. Caroline Bruzelius
Anne M. Cogan Professor of Art History at Duke University.
Dr. Bruzelius’ research focuses on the impact of the Franciscans and Dominicans on the medieval city. It concerns how new religious practices (preaching outdoors, visiting laymen in domestic spaces, and burying laymen in churches) affected church design and urban space. She is also deeply committed to exploring how new digital technologies can help us to communicate narratives about the built environment. Dr. Bruzelius is committed to working with the "Wired!" group to integrate these new technologies with teaching.
