“Writing the Global City: A Tribute to Professor Anthony D. King” featured in Harpur Perspective


This month’s Harpur Perspective features a look at “Writing the Global City: A Tribute to Professor Anthony D. King,” hosted this past October by the department of Art History:

Distinguished professors, artists, scholars and researchers gathered from around the globe to participate in an interdisciplinary art history conference held at Binghamton University in October.

“Writing the Global City” was a tribute conference to Professor Emeritus Anthony D. King, who taught for two decades in the art history and sociology departments (from 1987 through 2006). The conference, organized by the Binghamton University Art History Department, celebrated King’s legacy of scholarship, research, publications and mentorship of architectural and urban scholars.

“I prefer to see today’s conference not as a tribute to my own achievements,” said King, “but rather to the faculty, facilities and friendships I’ve made here (at Binghamton University) which have provided the opportunity for me to do what I’ve been able to do.”
