Chinese Opera Films after 1949

Conference held at the University of Chicago on Chinese Opera Films after 1949 – Music, Theater, and Cinematic Arts.

Design Notes:

Roundflow WordPress theme (outdated). This is a quietly elegant site characterized by a careful and harmonious selection of colors for the banner, menus and linked text. The colors for these elements (which can be set in the theme options) are derived from the photo on the front page. The post features of the site have been turned off so that each element of the site is based on an individual page.

Unfortunately it is not advisable to use this particular theme today since it has not seen any updates for several years. Please follow this link to see other model conference websites using a variety of different readily available WordPress themes.

Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture

The Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture aims to develop a new model for graduate education in American culture, to serve as a hub for the exciting multidisciplinary study of America at the University of Chicago, and to make that study visible on a national and international level.

Design Notes:

This is a very simple site based on the Tarski WordPress theme which was put together at short notice for the center. Each section on the site corresponds to a WordPress page. The theme’s horizontal navigation bar was turned off in the theme options in favour of a Page widget displayed in the sidebar.
