January 13–15, 2022
Presented on Zoom

The Andrew Ladis Memorial Trecento Conference is held biennially in honor of the art historian Andrew Ladis (1949–2007), an authority on Taddeo Gaddi and Giotto and an inspiring teacher. The conference—the only gathering of its kind—emphasizes trecento Italian art as a fruitful area of research and offers participants the opportunity to exchange ideas formally and informally in a collegial environment.

The next conference will be held online on January 13–15, 2022. Dr. Susan L’Engle, professor emerita, Saint Louis University, will be the keynote speaker. Twenty-four other scholars will present papers, which will be published by Brepols.

Admission is free, but advance registration for both the keynote and the two days of paper sessions is required.

The keynote address on January 13 is open to the public. To register for the keynote, please visit this webpage.

The remainder of the conference on January 14 and 15 is only for specialists or students of early Italian art or a related field; it will be presented on Zoom Events. To register for the remainder of the conference, please visit this webpage.
