Prudently Abandoning Wonder:
Changing the Governing Concept of the
Wunderkammer

Mark A. Meadow,
Professor and Department Chair

Each quarter the Department of the History of Art and Architecture will host a presentation in which a faculty member (current and emeritus) presents on-going research to colleagues, graduate students, and undergraduates in an informal, workshop setting. Our faculty consistently engages in new and exciting projects that are not always known to the departmental community. This series provides a means of sharing information about research, exhibitions, symposia, and other projects, at various stages in their development. By explaining the origins, research process, struggles and roadblocks, and methodological basis of their projects, faculty will provide graduate students and undergraduates with examples of cutting-edge research in the discipline.

Our first presenter, Prof. Mark A. Meadow, will speak on his recent fellowship at the American Academy in Berlin and developments in his research on Samuel Quiccheberg’s Inscriptiones (Munich, 1565) and early modern wunderkammern. Pizza will be provided.
