Faculty News: Book Party at CAA–Prof. Jennifer Nelson & Prof. Alex Dika Seggerman

If you will be at the College Art Association’s Annual Conference or in Chicago, you are invited to a book party celebrating two new books in modern and early modern art history: Alex Dika Seggerman‘s path-breaking Modernism on the Nile: Art in Egypt between the Islamic and the Contemporary (UNC Press, 2019) and Jennifer Nelson‘s Disharmony of the Spheres: The Europe of Holbein’s Ambassadors (Penn State UP, 2019). Both books interrogate art at the intersection of emerging political and religious identities at fraught turning points in history.

The event will take place a couple blocks away from the conference at the Dial Bookshop on the first night of CAA, February 12th, 6:00–7:30 pm, immediately following (for conference-goers) a roundtable on Radical Art Historiography sponsored by Prof. Nelson’s collaboratively run journal Selva
