The Eda G. Diskant Memorial Lecture

In this virtual talk, scholar Risham Majeed discusses works from the exhibition Medieval Treasures from the Glencairn Museum in relation to works in the museum’s collection, tracing their material origins outside of Europe. Learn how they came into the possession of American collectors and institutions. Introduced by curator Jack Hinton.


Risham Majeed’s research specializes in the connections between the European Middle Ages and historical African art. Majeed has curated several exhibitions and published extensively on exhibitions and current issues in museology. Currently she is completing a book length study of the museums of the Trocadéro palace in Paris.
