Alumni Activities: Zohreh Soltani at the Frick Symposium on the History of Art

Every spring, the Art History Department sends a graduate student speaker to the Annual Symposium in the History of Art, held at the Frick Collection and the Institute of Fine Arts in New York. The symposium is organized by the Graduate Student Organization of the IFA, in collaboration with the Frick Collection curatorial staff. Fourteen graduate programs in Art History in the region participate. 
This past spring, the symposium was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been rescheduled for this fall as a four-part webinar, during which graduate students will present their papers remotely on Zoom. On Thursday, October 23, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. EDT, Zohreh Soltani (Phd 2020) will present her paper, “Between  Shahyad and Azadi: The Meanings of Monumentality in Revolutionary Tehran.”
