'Early Modern Horror', Special Edition, Oxford Art Journal 34.3 ( 2011).

Early Modern Horror. Department of the History of Art, University College London, London, UK, May 8, 2010.

This UCL symposium was held in collaboration with The British Museum and the Oxford Art Journal. It paid critical attention to early modern representations of horror – works specifically designed to elicit fright, confusion, terror, pity, and/or pain from the spectator – in order to push beyond staid clichés about the beauty and order of the Renaissance. Conference proceedings later became the focus of a special issue of the Oxford Art Journal.

As a conference assistant, my responsibilities included communicating with and providing support to symposium contributors, assisting with event preparation, and registering attendees.
