Inaugurated in 2004, the Bettman Lecture Series is an annual program of monthly lectures in art history sponsored by the Department of Art History and Archaeology. Endowed with a bequest from Linda Bettman, a former graduate student of the department, the lectures are named in her honor.
Lectures take place in-person at 6:15 PM ET (New York) in lecture hall 612 in Schermerhorn Hall on Columbia's Morningside Campus. All Bettman lectures are open to the public and are followed by a reception.
The Bettman Lecture Series is coordinated by two graduate students, serving on a committee with two faculty members, who act in an advisory role. These are volunteer positions designed to foster community and intellectual engagement within the department. The series is intended to be a student-run initiative and the selection of student members is in the hands of the serving graduate students. (For information on how to become a Bettman series coordinator, please see here.)
