Laine Little at IASH

The next lecture at the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities will take place today at noon in the IASH Conference Room (LN 1106).

Laine Little, art history doctoral candidate and IASH graduate fellow, will speak on “Towers of Faith: Eighteenth Century Philippine Fortress Churches.” This presentation will explore the extent to which Philippine church architecture in the late eighteenth century diverged from its earlier European models as the focus of Spanish administration expanded from the primary impetus of saving souls to rescuing Spain’s political and commercial interests in Asia.
