Over 60 Universities Represented and Three Years of Planning: Five Things to See at SMU Art History’s International Conference

When we started out, we thought that maybe 80 people would show up – and that’s a lot for an academic conference. But as of today we have 145 people registered to attend.

The reason: Freund, the Kleinheinz Family Endowed Chair in Art History, is organizing the first conference of the Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture (HECAA), to be held at the Meadows School November 1-4.
