Ink and Image Publishes its Third Issue

27 May

Ink and Image, New York University’s journal of undergraduate research in the history of art, architecture, and urban design, published its third issue this spring.

The journal’s student editors for the 2010-11 academic year were Art History majors Sofia Chirico ’11 and Mia Laufer ’11, and John Kwiatkowski, Gallatin ’11.  The cover was designed by Suzy Shaheen, Art History ’10. Professor Carol Krinsky served as faculty advisor.  Four articles by NYU undergraduates – all Art History or Urban Design majors or minors — appear in the third issue.  The essays and their authors are as follows:

–Lindsey Berfond, “Exhibitions and the Beginnings of Spectacle:  1957-1966”;

–Whitney Theis,  “Green Machines for Living:  Sustainable Residential Architecture in the United States”;

–Christopher Purpura, “Cultural Cross-Dressing at the Jermyn Street Hammam; Whispering of Englishness Exposed in Victorian London”;

–Sam Siegel and Peter Spalding, “Great Camp Architecture:  From the Gilded Age Elite to Roosevelt’s New Deal”.

Ink and Image was founded in 2009 by department alumni Malcolm St. Clair ’09 and Alexis Wang ’09 with the goal of expanding the community of scholars at NYU by publishing original undergraduate research in the history and theory of art and architecture.  St. Clair and Wang served as executive editors of the inaugural issue, while Adrian Marshall ’10 served as associate editor and Professor Kenneth Silver as faculty advisor.  The first issue featured articles by Art History majors Chase Booker, Alexander Kauffman, Natalie Dûpecher, and Michael DeNiro.   Marshall and Kauffman edited Issue 2, which included articles by Alex Govenar, Anne Feng, and Hannah Green, all Art History majors or minors.  Professor Krinsky was faculty advisor for the second issue, and Professor Mosette Broderick, Director of the Urban Design and Architecture Studies program, provided additional valuable advice.

The articles published in each issue of Ink and Image develop out of papers and other research conducted by students in advanced Art History and Urban Design Courses, independent studies, and senior honors theses.

College of Arts & Science Dean Matthew Santirocco and Dean Sally Sanderlin provided crucial support toward the launch of Ink and Image, which continues to benefit from the support of both the CAS administration and the CAS Student Council.   Ink and Image is distributed to the New York Public Library, the Library of Congress, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Getty Research Institute, as well as Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, and Technical University in Dresden, Germany.
