Spring 2012 Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series

Spring 2012 Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series: “Learning to See”

Thursday, March 15, at 3:30 p.m.

Wentworth Institute of Technology, Beatty Hall, Room 426           

The Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series is an annual event that brings faculty together from different academic departments to present on a similar topic related to their expertise and scholarship. This semester’s lecture will feature two faculty members–George Katsiaficas and Fredrick Kuhn.

Professor Katsiaficas of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences will talk about the Museum of Fine Art’s collection of objects “normally” not regarded as beautiful in American culture. His presentation, titled “Learning to See through Cultures,” will discuss the beauty of these objects from within the prism of other cultures. Professor Kuhn, from the Department of Interior Design, will present on the work of American painter Edward Hopper. His presentation titled “Numbers Count: The Work of Edward Hopper” will explore how numbers play a role in understanding his art.

The Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series is sponsored by the office of Learning and Development. For more information, please contact Karen Britton, director of academic relations, at 617-989-4472 or
