Unique Class to Explore Medieval Sculpture Exhibit

This fall, University of Texas at Dallas students will have an unprecedented opportunity to learn about The Mourners medieval sculpture exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art from an all-star roster of scholars.

Dr. Rick Brettell, the UT Dallas Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair of Art and Aesthetics, will teach the course jointly with two Southern Methodist University medieval literature and history professors, Dr. Bonnie Wheeler and Dr. Jeremy Adams.

Scholars from Queen’s College, Rutgers University, The University of Illinois, Bowdoin College, Trinity University and the University of Iowa will also lecture.

The seminar – Majesty, Memory and Mourning in the Late Middle Ages – is open to UT Dallas undergraduate and graduate students and will meet weekly at the DMA from Aug. 27 to Dec. 2.
