Please join the Center for Cultural Analysis on Wednesday, April 12 for the next event in the Arts & Aesthetics seminar. We will host Amy Cooper and Giuditta Cirnigliaro, 2016-2017 Graduate Fellows at the CCA.
Amy Cooper is a PhD candidate in the Department of English at Rutgers University whose work focuses on theories of the image in pre-modern aesthetics. By retracing the role of the image in the history of aesthetic formalism, her dissertation seeks to recover the sensory-cognitive foundations of early modern poetics.
Giuditta Cirnigliaro is a PhD student in the Department of Italian at Rutgers University with a concentration in Art History. She holds a Laurea degree in Italian Literature from the University of Milan, a B.A. in Painting from the Brera Academy, and a MA in Fine Arts from the Glasgow School of Arts. Her dissertation centers on Leonardo da Vinci's compositional methods in drawings and literary writings, and she analyzes recurrent patterns in the production of contemporary creative projects.
The event will take place in the Rutgers Academic Building, West Wing, Room 6051 (located at 15 Seminary Place, on the College Avenue campus) and will run from 1:10 pm - 4:10 pm. Refreshments will be served.
