Art History faculty member Joseph Kopta participated in a panel, “Globalizing Medieval Art Education: A Roundtable,” on February 25, 2023 at the 98th Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America in Washington, D.C. His participation, titled “The Global Middle Ages: Syllabi in Three Case Studies,” was part of two sessions in Honor of Lawrence Nees, Professor Emeritus of Medieval Art at the University of Delaware, and an early proponent of the geographic expansion of the discipline beyond Western Europe. Kopta's presentation discussed Tyler's curricular development of its pre-modern art history course offerings from an intersectional perspective.
