Liminal Spaces: A Symposium in honor of Pamela Sheingorn

Friday, October 30th at Princeton University

The Index of Christian Art in Princeton University is pleased to host Liminal Spaces, a symposium in honor of Pamela Sheingorn. This one day-event will highlight work that explores spaces “in-between”—between text/image/reader/viewer, performance/spectator, medieval/modern. The symposium will feature the kind of interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged scholarship that Professor Sheingorn continues to publish, as well as cultivate among her colleagues and students.

The conference will be held on Friday, October 30th 2009 in the Multi-Purpose Room, Frist campus Center in Princeton University . Participants include: Jonathan Alexander, New York University; Adelaide Bennett, Princeton University ; Glenn Burger, The Graduate Center, CUNY; Madeline Caviness, Emerita, Tufts University; Robert L. Clark, Kansas State University; Susannah Crowder, Hunter College, CUNY; Marilynn Desmond, Binghamton University; Rachel Dressler, University at Albany, SUNY ; Rick Emmerson, Manhattan College; Colum Hourihane, Princeton University; Lucy Freeman Sandler, Emerita, New York University; Kathryn Smith, New York University.

The full program and registration details are available through the “Conferences” link on the Index of Christian Art website: The registration deadline is October 20th. Registration is required. There is no charge for this conference.
