How we make and interpret drawings

Friday, March 16, 2018
10:00am – 5:00am

Storrs Campus
Humanities Institute

What happens when one makes a drawing or sees one? The speakers at this event present new theories of how a drawing is composed and understood in terms of its parts (Cohn) and how one knows what a drawing or picture means (Greenberg), taking into account methods of ‘perspective’ or other representational systems that the artist has used. And what happens when drawings or pictures occur in sequence as in a ‘comics’ or a film?

If you require an accommodation to participate in this event, please contact Humanities Institute staff (Jo-Ann Waide/Nasya Al-Saidy) by email at or phone (860) 486-9057 by March 11, 2018.
