John Curley, "Bridging the Cold War Divide: Art and Technology"

HI Summer Writing Grant Presentation with John Curley, Art History
"Bridging the Cold War Divide: Art and Technology" 
Wednesday, November 15
Z. Smith Reynolds Library Auditorium (Room 404)

John Curley, Associate Professor of Art History, was one of three recipients of a Humanities Institute Summer Writing Grant for Summer 2017. He will give the talk, "Bridging the Cold War Divide: Art and Technology," at 2:00pm on Wednesday, November 15th in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Auditorium (Room 404). Curley teaches courses in twentieth and twenty-first century art, as well as the history of photography. His research explores the ways that postwar art, primarily in the United States and Europe, intervenes into larger realms of visuality, the mass media, and politics, especially during the period of the Cold War. His current book project Art and the Global Cold War: A History is under contract with Laurence King and should appear in 2018.

Each summer the Humanities Institute funds up to four competitive Summer Writing Grants for university faculty working in the humanities to complete or make significant progress on a manuscript for a monograph that is either under contract or in which a publisher has indicated written interest. Applications are open to all full-time faculty, with priority for two of the grants given to proposals submitted by tenure-track humanities faculty working on a first monograph. Presentations from other 2017 grant recipients Sarah Hogan and Mir Yarfitz will take place during the Spring 2018 semester.
