Melissa Quarto

Melissa Quarto is a junior, double-majoring in History of Art & Architecture and Hispanic Languages & Literature. Her research for HAA 1010: Visualizing Heritage in Pittsburgh considers the construction of  a collective identity in the Hungarian Nationality Room, (ded. 1939), which explores perspectival shifts in the imagined target audience of the Hungarian community to a broader vision of a universal public, envisioned through the later addition of an informative historical timeline in the stained glass windows to the room in 1956.

 

Melissa will be presenting her paper, entitled "Shifting Perspectives: Evolution of Imagery as Identity in the Hungarian Room" and talking about her experience in the course for HAAARCH 2015.
