The MSU students include:
- Paige Whitcomb, “Analyzing the Melun Diptych: An Examination of Jean Fouquet’s Style”

How students are selected
Every year in the spring semester, MSU and Drury University each choose three advanced art history students to give 15- to 20-minute presentations on his or her research.
Faculty select student speakers from a group of competitive proposals. The faculty then guide the students in developing oral presentations for the symposium.
