On March 20-21, 2015, The Catholic University of America’s School of Arts and Sciences, School of Theology and Religious Studies, and University Honors Program was proud to present an interdisciplinary graduate conference to explore the influence of Mary and her image through time. The conference included papers that draw on various approaches to the subject, including art history, history, music, literature, theater, and theology. Over 140 faculty, staff, students, and those with a general interest in the topic attended the two-day conference.
The opening day of the conference was held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and featured a keynote address by renowned medieval historian Dr. Miri Rubin, Professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at the University of London. Among Professor Rubin’s publications is Mother of God: A History of the Virgin Mary. The second day of the conference was held at the Pryzbyla Center on the campus of The Catholic University of America and featured several morning and afternoon sessions along with a light reception.
