Lecture: A Cannon to the Canon? Case Studies in Moving Beyond the Textbook at Lyman Allyn

March 9 @ 3:00 pm

This program will introduce the NEH grant-funded project, “Not your grandfather’s art history: A BIPOC Reader,” a collaboration with Smarthistory.org led by Olivia Chiang, that includes 20 essays authored largely by scholars of color and which aims to broaden the scope of the traditional art historical canon.

During the program, Chiang will examine two case studies from the Reader: The Lion Temple at Naga in Nubia (modern-day Sudan) and what it can tell us about Nubia’s cultural relationship with ancient Egypt, but also uniquely Nubian concepts of gender roles in royal power.
