Reception to follow

Dr. Christina Smylitopoulos is a specialist in art and visual culture of the long eighteenth century. She received her PhD from McGill University and, before joining the art history faculty at the University of Guelph, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Yale Center for British Art. Her current research traces the significance of Regency illustrated books, which occupy an unclear position in the trajectory from stand-alone Georgian graphic satire to the Victorian comic.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
