Reconceiving Pre-Modern Spaces is the topic of the eleventh annual Marco Symposium to be hosted by UT’s Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies March 6 through 8.
The symposium will feature scholars from various disciplines exploring ways in which pre-modern peoples conceived of space—as a physical reality, philosophical idea, and topic of artistic expression.
Diane Favro, professor of architecture and urban design at the University of California, Los Angeles, will deliver the keynote address, “Bricks into Marble: Reverse Engineering Augustan Rome,” at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 6, in the Lindsay Young Auditorium in Hodges Library.
The keynote address and all lectures are free and open to the public. Parking is available at the Volunteer Hall garage, located at 1545 White Avenue.
