Graduate Student Symposium Keynote Lecture
November 10, 2017

 

Jenni Sorkin (Yale PhD 2010), Associate Professor, History of Art & Architecture, University of California, Santa Barbara, considers the gendered history of American ceramist Adelaide Alsop Robineau’s famed, labor intensive Scarab Vase (1910) as an unlikely precursor—one hundred years later—to digitally printed clay, utilized today by ceramists working in the 2010s.
