Medieval Architecture: Outside the Lines

Long-time and much loved professor Thomas E. Polk II (retired 2006) died in 2014. Using funds donated to the School in his memory, the art history area is organizing a one-day conference on medieval architecture. By honoring Professor Polk’s memory in this way we also hope to highlight the academic and intellectual importance of the study of the medieval world and its architecture. By venturing “outside the lines” we are presenting evidence for the wide intellectual, geographical, and chronological span of medievalism.
