Final RAS Student Series Lecture of 2014


Yesterday evening (Wednesday 3 December) we were delighted to hold the last RAS Student Series lecture of 2014. Angela Becher (SOAS) and Cleo Roberts (University of Liverpool) addressed the audience, respectively, on A Look Behind the Façade: Critical Inquiries into China’s Monumental Architecture in Contemporary Chinese Art, and Waterscapes in Indian Cities. Both lectures revealed fascinating insights into the speakers’ research and sparked numerous questions and observations from the audience. Attendees also enjoyed the presentation of striking images both speakers used to illustrate their lectures. The lectures were followed by a highly enjoyable wine reception.

The lecture is open to all and we hope to see you there.
