January 29 , 2014 – Bethany Schneider

Associate Professor of English
Department of English, Bryn Mawr College

“Depth Perception: The Visual Experience of Writing Popular Fiction”

THE RIVER OF NO RETURN (Dutton 2013), an adventure novel I wrote under the pen name Bee Ridgway, is poised somewhere between so-called “high” and so-called “low” culture.  From one perspective, it is stuffed with historical detail and literary citation and has been critically well received, with the Washington Post naming it a notable book of 2013.  From another, it is resolutely frothy, with time travel, cliffhangers, sex scenes, and handfuls of exclamation points driving it forward.  I will discuss the visual stimuli and the visual experience of writing such a Janus-faced novel, and talk about how my own compromised depth perception, both literal and cultural, led me into the sparkling shallows of popular fiction.

February 19, 2014 – Eng-Beng Lim

Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies
Affiliated with American, East Asian, Gender and Sexuality, and Ethnic Studies
Brown University, Providence, RI 02912-1897.
Author of Brown Boys and Rice Queens (NYU Press, 2013)

“Future Island Sexuality”

In this talk, Lim will examine the architectural and botanical performance of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay as a way of engaging new iterations of island sexuality. At once a sci-fi botany fantasy and a postcolonial super garden of the twenty-first century, the Gardens presents an island botany complex that internalizes imperial horticultural display for an electric tropicality powered by biodiversity, sustainable energy, and a global ambition for the post colony. Lim will consider ways of reading this complex through its award-winning cooled conservatories and Supertree Grove. He will also be speaking about this work in relation to his monograph, Brown Boys and Rice Queens: Spellbinding Performance in the Asias (NYU Press, 2013) as a way to think about transnational performance and sexuality more broadly.
Eng-Beng Lim is Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies, and Undergraduate Director of Performance Studies at Brown University. He is affiliated with the Department of American Studies, Department of East Asian Studies, the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, and a board member of Gender & Sexuality Studies at the Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women. He is part of the editorial collective of Social Text and on the board of Theatre Research International.

February 26, 2014: Maeve Doyle and Carrie Robbins

Maeve Doyle, Ph.D. Candidate
History of Art, Bryn Mawr College

“Penitential Pleasures in a Late 13th-Century Book of Hours”

A series of historiated initials in a prayer book from northern France (Cambrai, Bibl. mun. ms. 87) shows a laywoman—presumably representing the book’s owner—rejecting a series of temptations presented by a monstrous figure. Her depicted self-denial of carnal pleasures seems at odds with the evidently pleasurable experience of owning and reading such a deluxe book. This paper explores the role of visual pleasure within the penitential function of this illuminated manuscript.

Carrie Robbins, Ph.D.
Bryn Mawr College
Adjunct Assistant Professor
Temple University and La Salle University

“Reproduced Reproductions: An Overlooked Iconography in Trompe l’Oeil Paintings”

This paper turns our attention to the overlooked abundance of reproductive media represented throughout the history of trompe l’oeil painting to consider the appeal of this iconography for trompe l’oeil artists. When art historians identify the subject of John Frederick Peto’s trompe l’oeil paintings, for example, as Abraham Lincoln, they see through the depicted object used to represent this subject, whether an engraving, a cabinet card, a carte de visite, etc. The scholarship thus stages the seeming-invisibility of reproductive media characteristic of contemporary reception, an invisibility that might not have been as true for the artist or for the original viewing context of these paintings.

March 5, 2014: Martha Ward

Associate Professor of Art History, Department of Visual Arts, University of Chicago

“Scanning and Seeing:  Art Installations in Interwar France”

The surprising nostalgia for densely hung exhibitions that developed among some French museological circles in the 1920s and 30s has much to tell us about interpreting display practice.  This talk considers critical commentary and exhibition practice in relationship to new  methodologies at the time, especially as concerned with the role of attention, memory and materiality in art historical understanding.
