Call For Papers: Museum Tuesday Tea Series

Open To All Oberlin College seniors 

Date of Presentation:  Tuesday, May 13 at 2:30pm

The Allen Memorial Art Museum is seeking submissions from Oberlin College 

seniors for a lecture to be presented during the last Tuesday Tea of the spring

semester, May 13, 2008 at 2:30 pm.  With this opportunity, the AMAM hopes

to celebrate the achievements of a graduating Oberlin student.  


Tuesday Teas are part of a popular adult lecture series that occur on the second Tuesday of each month during the academic year.  Past speakers have included AMAM staff, Oberlin College professors, outside scholars, and other art  professionals.  Tuesday Teas are held in the galleries and generally last about 30 – 45 minutes, followed by a question and answer period.  Light refreshments are then served in the East Gallery.


Papers should focus on a single work of art in the permanent collection or a special exhibition, preferably on display.  Proposals will be in part assessed on the work’s suitability for discussion in situ before a large audience.  A one-page abstract should be submitted, along with a resume and letter of interest, to Jason Trimmer, Curator of Education, at the address below by Tuesday, March 4, 2008, no later than 5:00pm.  An Art History or Studio major is not required, but the student’s academic background and familiarity with his or her subject will be taken into consideration.


Abstracts will be juried by AMAM curatorial staff and the selection announced

by March 17, 2008.
