Jenni Sorkin (Yale PhD 2010), Associate Professor, History of Art & Architecture, University of California, Santa Barbara, will consider the gendered history of American ceramist Adelaide Alsop Robineau’s famed, labor intensive Scarab Vase (1910) as an unlikely precursor—one hundred years later—to digitally printed clay, utilized today by ceramists working in the 2010s.

This program will be live streamed. For more information visit Graduate Student Symposium | Long Shadows: Tradition, Influence, and Persistence in Modern Craft.
