Michael Ernst (PhD student) presents virtual talk at Yale

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Michael Ernst is presenting "The Pixelated Mosque: Depictions of Islamic Architecture in AzDimension Video Games" for Single-Slide Ṣoḥbat (January 22-23) facilitated by students in the Yale History of Art Department. "This event is intended to bring together graduate students, at any level of their study, working on the art and architecture of the broadly-defined Islamic world... we challenge speakers to use a single slide showcasing an object/ site important to their research, and to keep presentations to ten minutes. In addition to being more suitable for the Zoom format, this will allow for a greater diversity of presentations, and foster new and interesting juxtapositions across spatial and temporal boundaries within this broadly-defined field."
