Histories Built, Carved, and Written: A Symposium in Honor of Tod A. Marder
Zimmerli Museum, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, April 7, 2017
This symposium is organized on the occasion of Tod A. Marder’s retirement from active teaching. A generous and insightful scholar,
mentor, and colleague, Tod has been a significant influence on the fields of Baroque architecture, Bernini studies, and architectural
history and criticism for over forty years. To celebrate Tod’s scholarship and to reflect on the current state and historiography of
architectural history and Bernini studies, this symposium brings together colleagues, mentees, and former students who will speak on a
range of topics inspired by Tod’s work and example.
