The James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History is pleased to announce the final lecture of the 2016-17 Art and Art History Colloquium.

Samantha A. Noel is Assistant Professor of Art History at Wayne State University. She received her B.A. in Fine Art from Brooklyn College, C.U.N.Y., and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Art History from Duke University. Her research interests revolve around the history of art, visual culture and performance of the Black Diaspora. She has published on black modern and contemporary art and performance in journals such as Small Axe and Third Text. Her most recent article will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Art Journal. Noel’s current book project examines black modernism in the early twentieth century, particularly how tropicality functioned as a unifying element in African Diasporic art and performance.


All lectures take place on Wednesdays at 6:15 pm in Bernath Auditorium at the Undergraduate Library, Wayne State University.

The colloquium is free and open to the student, academic and art communities and the public at large.
