UPCOMING EARLY MODERN EVENTS IN MELBOURNE

MED-REN ART FORUM

Med/Ren Art Forum, University of Melbourne, Monday 9 March


The first meeting of this year's Med/Ren Art Forum will be on Monday 9 March at the University of Melbourne. Dr Susan Scollay, a specialist in Islamic art and architecture among other things, has kindly agreed to attend and share some of her expertise. 

The group will discuss a book chapter by Luca Mola, "Material Diplomacy: Venetian Luxury Gifts for the Ottoman Empire in the Late Renaissance", from the anthology "Global Gifts: The Material Culture of Diplomacy in Early Modern Europe", 2018.  Please get in touch with Adam Bushby (email below) to get a copy. This is a fascinating paper that will appeal to anyone interested in exploring the many rich and complex artistic and cultural exchanges across the Mediterranean.  Çok güzel!

As always, the reading group is quite informal and all are welcome to join. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, or if you have any other queries, please contact Adam Bushby: adambushby@hotmail.com or Professor Anne Dunlop: anne.dunlop@unimelb.edu.au.

Date: Monday 9 March
Time: 6pm
Venue: Room 202, John Medley Building (Building 191), University of Melbourne
