Ink and Image 7 has been published!

29 Jul


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

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

The journal’s Senior Editor for the 2014-15 academic year was Zachary Fine (Gallatin ’15); the Associate Editor was Jesslyn Guntur (Urban Design & Architecture Studies ’15). Zachary, who concentrated in art history and philosophy, served as a co-editor of the journal’s sixth issue and was a contributor to Ink and Image 5. Once again, Professor Carol Krinsky provided invaluable guidance and assistance as the journal’s faculty advisor and editor.

Four articles, all by current NYU undergraduates or departmental alumni, appear in the seventh issue. The authors and their essays are as follows:

Caroline O. Fowler (Art History ’05; Ph.D. Art & Archaeology, Princeton University ’13), “The City of God as Source for the Mosaic Program at Monreale;”

Nora Gorman (Art History; History minor ’15), “Manuscript Collecting as Statecraft in the Courts of King Charles V of France and Jean, Duke of Berry, 1364-1416;”

Alex Greenberger (Art History ’15), “The Spiritual Unity of Bill Viola’s Going for by Day;”

Elizabeth Meshel (Urban Design & Architecture Studies; Art History minor ’15), “Reevaluating Romanization: The Arches of Septimius Severus.”

Ink and Image was founded in 2008-09 by department alumni Malcolm St. Clair (Urban Design and Architecture Studies ’09) and Alexis Wang (Art History ’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. Former 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 the current CAS Dean, Gabrielle Starr, the CAS administration, and the CAS Student Council. Read about previous issues of the journal, including the roster of past authors and editors here and here.

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.

Hearty congratulations to the authors and editors on their splendid achievements. Please stop by the Department of Art History and pick up a copy of Ink and Image 7.
