Glidden professor lectures on meshing of global cultures

Feb 19, 2009  

Glidden Visiting Professor Michael Lingohr will present "Europe Meets Asia: The Beginnings of Global Cultural Exchange in the 19th Century" at 5:10 p.m. on Feb. 26 in Anderson Auditorium, Scripps Hall 111. The event is free and open to the public.

Lingohr will discuss changing Asian influences starting in the 18th Century that led to a deeper understanding of Asian cultures during the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. 

The Robert and Rene' Glidden Visiting Professorship is an annual program that supports short-term academic appointments for distinguished visitors to Ohio University. Glidden Professors are expected to be distinguished individuals who have attained wide recognition based upon artistic, engineering, historical, literary or scientific achievement.

Lingohr is an accomplished international scholar with long-established ties to Ohio University.  Coming from the University of Leipzig in Germany, he is a specialist in Italian Renaissance architecture and architectural theory.  Lingohr taught Ohio University undergraduate students as part of the Ohio Leipzig European Center (OLEC) during four separate programs in recent years.
