A SYMPOSIUM IN HONOR OF KAJA SILVERMAN
Kaja Silverman has decided to retire after this academic year, an opportune moment to honor her many achievements and contributions to the field and to celebrate the numerous relationships she has nurtured with colleagues, friends, and students over the course of her illustrious career. The symposium will feature talks by T. J. Clark, Anne M. Wagner, and Kaja herself, and introductions by Elise Archias, Thom Collins, Huey Copeland, Kathy Sachs, and others.
This event is sponsored by the Departments of the History of Art, English, and Fine Arts/Stuart Weitzman School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania; the University of Pennsylvania’s Keith L. and Kathy Sachs Program in Contemporary Art; and Kaja Silverman’s Mellon Distinguished Achievement Award. This event is organized by André Dombrowski, David Eng, and Homay King.
