I'm proud to see so much work and time come together in the end. Our research is not done, but today's conference was a great way to showcase what we've done and where we're going! #URCA#EmergingScholars
Lovely and scholarly evening at the #dcjicc last night for the first lecture in a new quarterly series they are devloping - the JICC Seasonal Art Lecture Series from Emerging Scholars ~~ the Scholar Spotlight! This series will focus on new research into the Fine Arts of Japan.
The first lecture was by @freersackler fellow Dr. Eugenia Bogdanova-Kummer on Calligraphy & Cultural Exchange between Japan, the U.S. and Europe in the Post War Years. The Q&A was great! (the post lecture Kirin Ichiban wasn't too shabby either). One of the best parts was we took a live audience vote on what the next lecturer should present in the fall, and it ended in a TIE. We went with option 1, "Calligrams in Premodern and Early Modern Japan". My favorite thing about the @japanembdc is they are always reinventing their programming and appealing to new demographics (or me who just loves everything). I can't wait to see the direction this lecture series takes!! Thanks to @edelmore for accompanying!
The next generation of #TiffanyGirls in front of a spectacular #TiffanyMosaic last night at @artglassforumny's "Emerging Scholars" lecture series.
Ria Murray, Gallery Manager and photographer here at @lilliannassau and MA Candidate at @parsonshdcs, and Morgan Albahary, Curatorial and Collections Assistant at @theneustadt, presented their original research in the field of art glass in the historic Chapel of the Angels at #StMichaelsChurch , outfitted by Tiffany Studios in the early 1920s.
Murray introduced the ornamented blown glassware of little-known Bavarian designer Bruno Mauder, while Albahary discussed her integral work on the upcoming exhibition @corningmuseum, "Tiffany's Glass Mosaics," covering several of the firm's extant mosaic commissions in New York City.
I feel happy and thankful for the past one week in Vancouver. Happy to explore another little piece of our world and thankful for getting the opportunity to participate as staff and speaker on the Annual Conference of Tourism & Leisure Studies. Thank you, Common Ground Network for choosing me as one of the five emerging scholars, I hope to see you all next year in the Canary Islands. And thank you all, who contributed to my research in any ways. It was a challenging process but the results show the effort. Now I am ready to fly back home and dive into the writing part of my Master thesis. Wish me luck ☺ #goodbyecanada#conference#tourismstudent#dissertation#emergingscholars#hardworkpaysoffs#researcher#commonground#proudofmyself
