The Research in Art and Visual Evidence (RAVE) Workshop provides a forum for University of Chicago graduate students––and the occasional faculty or outside speaker––to present their works-in-progress whose research centers on art or any type of visual and material culture. RAVE provides visually-minded scholars from across the university with the opportunity to receive feedback from art historians, while also ensuring that art historians think broadly and experimentally about their projects.

Bazin@100

Marking the centennial of the birth of French film critic and theorist André Bazin, Bazin@100  seeks to assess the current situation of thinking about his work as both a historical figure and a media theorist whose work remains vital to thinking about cinema (and other media) today. Showcasing Hervé Joubert-Laurencin's feature-length reconstruction of Bazin’s unfinished film, as well as the upcoming publication of Bazin Écrits, the conference brings together a range of scholars working on different aspects of Bazin’s work and its implications.
