Mac Art History Under Attack Again!

This was a comment on the site but I feel it should be its on post.

MAC ATTACK

ART HISTORY THREATENED…
(AGAIN)

ONCE MORE MCMASTER’S ADMINISTRATION IS TRYING TO CLOSE THE ART HISTORY PROGRAMS

The University Senate, having rejected a motion to close Art History programs on April 14, is being challenged as the Dean of Humanities is re-introduces the motion at Senate on Wednesday, May 12th, 3:00 PM, Council Chambers, Gilmour Hall (now that students have left). We URGENTLY need YOUR SUPPORT.

I Email the President, Peter George presdnt@mcmaster.ca and the incoming president, Patrick Deane patrick.deane@queensu.ca and be sure to copy macarthistory@gmail.com

II Attend an OPEN MEETING in support of Art History, gathering in the atrium of the Student Centre at 7:00 p.m., Monday, May 10 (Student, Alumni, and Faculty Speakers).

III Attend the SENATE MEETING on Wednesday May 12th, at 3pm. It is open to the public and your presence will demonstrate the community’s commitment to the fine arts.

MAC ART HISTORY HAS BEEN A PART OF THE HAMILTON ARTISTIC RENAISSANCE. IT IS NEEDED BY OUR COMMUNITY, ITS ARTISTS, AND ITS MUSEUMS. IT HAS BEEN PART OF THE CITY AND UNIVERSITY FOR OVER EIGHTY YEARS. DON’T LET IT GO THE WAY OF ITALIAN, SPANISH, GERMAN, COMPARATIVE LITERATURE, CULTURAL STUDIES, AND WOMEN’S STUDIES.
