Four perspectives on the seminal text by George Kubler from BGC faculty Meredith B. Linn, François Louis, Aaron Glass, and Drew Thompson, moderated by Joshua Massey and Jeffrey L. Collins

In 1962, Yale University art historian George Kubler published The Shape of Time: Remarks on the History of Things, a book that challenged traditional notions of style and period in art history. Now, 60 years later, we bring together a historian, an anthropologist, an archaeologist, and an art historian—all members of the BGC faculty—to explore The Shape of Time across geographical and disciplinary boundaries and to rediscover the prescient insights it offers for material culture and object-oriented scholarship.

Moderated by Professor Jeffrey Collins and MA student Joshua Massey.
