Students Present Research at National Conference on Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Earlier this month, four Lafayette students presented research at the Fifth Undergraduate Conference in Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Moravian College. More than 100 students from colleges and universities across the nation participated.

The Lafayette presenters were part the Byzantine Art course taught by Ida Sinkevic, associate professor of art. The class explores the art and architecture of Asian, Balkan, Eastern European, and Mediterranean countries during the period of Byzantine rule from 343-1453. Under Sinkevic’s guidance, the students extended their research beyond the course requirements, and their papers were accepted by a professional jury.
