Liminal Spaces: A Symposium in Honor of Pamela Sheingorn

We would like to remind you that Liminal Spaces: A Symposium in Honor of Pamela Sheingorn will be held at Princeton University on October 30. The symposium will feature the kind of interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged scholarship that has been a hallmark of Professor Sheingorn's work. Papers will highlight work that explores spaces "in-between" -- between text/image/reader/viewer, performance/spectator, medieval/modern.

This event, organized by Elina Gertsman and Jill Stevenson, is hosted by the Index of Christian Art. It was made possible by the generosity of the ICA and the City University of New York.

Participants include Jonathan J. G. Alexander (NYU); Adelaide Bennett (Princeton); Glenn Burger (CUNY); Madeline H. Caviness (Tufts); Robert L. Clark (KSU); Susannah Crowder (CUNY); Marilynn Desmond (Binghamton); Rachel Dressler (Albany); Rick Emmerson (Manhattan College); Colum Hourihane (Princeton); Lucy Freeman Sandler (NYU); and Kathryn Smith (NYU). Full program is available on the ICA's webiste (

Please note the change of venue: the conference will take place in McCormick Hall, room 101 (not in the Frist Campus Center as initially announced).

Spaces are limited and registration is required. There is no charge for the symposium. To register please contact Robin Dunham ( before 20 October 2009.
