Please join us for a presentation by Wendy Bellion, Professor and Sewell C. Biggs Chair of American Art History and Director of the Center for Material Culture Studies at the University of Delaware. Bellion will discuss the research she undertook for her book Iconoclasm in New York: Revolution to Reenactment (2019), which explores a history of material violence in Revolutionary New York. Bellion’s work traces acts of political iconoclasm and the return of destroyed things in visual representations and civic performances. The webinar will also address more broadly the opportunities and challenges authors face when working with/reproducing visual media.
