Dr. Andrew E. Hershberger traveled to Banff, Alberta, during the middle of October, 2013, to present a paper at the Universities Art Association of Canada / L'Association d'art des universités du Canada (UAAC/AAUC) National Conference. The UAAC/AAUC is the Canadian equivalent of the College Art Association (CAA) in the US. While in Banff, Hershberger presented first in a four-person panel focused on "Imagination in 19th Century Art," along with art historians from the University of Victoria, the University of Alberta, and the University of Toronto. Hershberger titled his presentation "Imaging and Imagining Geological Time in Two Rare19th-Century Geology Books." Buildling on his earlier presentation in October at the University of Notre Dame, this research topic relates to Hershberger's ongoing study of the United States Geological Survey or USGS-era of photographic history.

Associate Professor of Art History Dr. Allie Terry-Fritsch is presenting new research at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Oct. 27th. Her talk, titled "Playing the Renaissance Piazza: Florentine Calcio and the Somaesthetic Transformation of the Urban Sphere," connects the rich political symbolism of Piazza Santa Croce in Florence to the performance of communal identity through the game of calcio to offer a reading of the built environment in the context of the emerging Medici Duchy of the sixteenth century. Dr. Terry-Fritsch's talk is part of a panel sponsored by the Early Modern Studies Workshop at the University of Chicago and will eventually be published as part of her book manuscript on Somaesthetics and the Renaissance: Viewing Bodies at Work in Early Modern Italy.
