Each year, the UW Simpson Center for the Humanities provides support to a variety of projects. Three people from the School are involved with programs funded for the 2018–2019 academic year.
Associate Professor Sonal Khullar and the Division of Art History are hosting a series of events as part of Rethinking the Global Turn: Oceanic, Geological, and Digital Art Histories. Among the events, Khullar will be teaching a winter quarter graduate seminar titled "World Art Studies and Global Art Histories" and Whitney M. Davis from University of California, Berkeley, will give a Katz Distinguished Lecture. Public events will be added to the School's calendar as details become available.
Art History Assistant Professor Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse is part of a cross-disciplinary group that plans to develop a graduate certificate in American Indian and Indigenous Studies, which will be hosted by the Department of American Indian Studies.
Emily Zimmerman, Director of the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, and the Gallery itself continue as partners with Assistant Professor Kemi Adeyemi (Department of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies) in The Black Embodiments Studio. This is the second year of support from the Simpson Center for this project. Public events will be added to the Gallery's calendar as details become available.
