Faculty News

Cathy Goebel (Art History) was an invited speaker for the Scholars' Round Table at the Smithsonian Institution's Freer Gallery. Her talk preceded the symposium, Palaces of Art: Whistler and the Art Worlds of Aestheticism (October 27-28). She presented James McNeill Whistler: Framing Critical Dialogues through Digitization, related to her ongoing research and publication of a digital archive of Whistler's lifetime criticism. Cathy is the recognized authority on Whistler's critical reception and directs students in primary research through the Centre for Whistler Criticism, managed by Megan MacCall, Department of Art History. Cathy was introduced as leading an important scholarly contribution on Whistler and his milieu. The symposium included curators from the National Gallery, Smithsonian, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and professors from universities in the US, Europe and Asia. The event honored the lifetime achievement of Professor Margaret MacDonald, University of Glasgow, one of several collaborative institutions for the Whistler criticism project. Dr. MacDonald met with Augustana London term students earlier this month in Scotland, where she discussed and previewed her online catalogue raisonné of Whistler etchings.
