Department of Art and Design Brown Bag Lunch Talk

James Bryan, assistant professor of art history, recently presented his
paper "Carriage Makers in the American South: 1700-1820" at this year's
joint annual conference of the Popular Culture Association and American
Culture Association, held in New Orleans. The paper covers the history of
the trade in the Southern states, describing where its major centers of
production were, what related occupations were pursued by the
craftsmen/businessmen involved, and what their social status was. For those
interested, Dr. Bryan will present this paper again on Tuesday, April 21,
from 12:30-1:30, in Applied Arts 201. Feel free to bring a lunch if you
wish to attend.
