This year's theme, "Object--Value--Canon," explores the way traditional art historical methodologies can be challenged and reinvented.

Fine's research centers on cultural history, visual culture, Roman history and Jewish history. His project title is, "The Arch of Titus: From Roman Triumphal Arc to Lieu de Memoire and Post-Colonial Icon."
