Being an academic can be hard sometimes - but not when it involves a trip to New York!
In a few weeks I will speaking at the College Art Association 101st Annual Conference (13-16 February). I will be giving a paper as part of a session entitled Tapestry and Reproduction. Here are the details:
"Tapestry and Reproduction"
Panel Co-chaired by K. L. H. Wells, University of Southern California; and Barbara Caen, The Frick Collection
College Art Association (CAA) 101st Annual Conference

I feel so fortunate to be part of such an exciting looking panel and cannot wait to hear my fellow speakers. Online registration for the conference is now closed but details of how to buy tickets on the day can be found here.
Most readers of this blog are unlikely to be in New York just waiting for something to do on 15 February so I'll be sure to do a follow-up blog post about some of the ideas and issues that arise out of the session.
