Seminars 

Sources to Art History. A seminar organized together by TUCEMEMS and Art History. March 27th, 14-18, at seminar room E221 (Kaivokatu12, Minerva-building, 2nd floor.)

What is a source for art history research? 
Primary sources are generally considered to be direct accounts of an event or the actual documents associated with an event. Therefore, primary sources can be found in diaries, memoirs, letters, speeches, autobiographies, treaties, and transcripts of hearings, court cases. However, the source is the product of a precise context, which needs to be interpreted. The focus will be the intertwining between primary and secondary sources and the context in which the image was produced. 

The Seminar will be in Finnish and English. The seminar is open and free to everyone. However, registration via email to TUCEMEMS research assistant Virpi Luoma (vmluom(at)utu.fi) by 24.3 is recommended since after the seminar there will be coffee service. Warmly welcome!
