Ink and Image, New York University’s journal of undergraduate research in the history of art, architecture, and urban design, published its ninth issue this 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 & Architecture Studies courses, independent studies, and senior honors theses.

The journal’s editors for the 2016-17 academic year are Editor-in-Chief Grace Lubin (Art History/Politics ’18), and Co-Editors Sabrina Santos (Urban Design & Architecture Studies/Environmental Studies ’18) and Sarah Evers (Art History; Urban Design & Architecture Studies/History minor ’17). As in so many years past, Professor Carol Krinsky provided guidance and assistance as the journal’s faculty advisor and editor.

Omer Ben-Zvi (M.F.A. Studio Art, Steinhardt ’18) designed the striking cover.

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

Anqi Xu (Art History/Comparative Literature ’16), “Landscapes as Cross-dressing: An Analysis of Lin Xue’s Paintings.”

Mary-Brett O’Bryan (Art History; German/Comparative Literature minor ’17), “The Modern Nude: Pubic Hair as Indicator.”

Mathilde A. van Tulder (Urban Design & Architecture Studies/Contemporary Culture and Creative Production, GLS ’18), “Preservation of Cultural Heritage Beyond War: A Case-Study of Palmyra, Syria.”

Rachel A. Lim (Art History; Web Application Programming minor ’18), “Video Games in 2004 and the 2014 Biennial.”

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 CAS dean and administration and the Department of Art History. You may read about previous issues of the journal in our earlier posts.

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 9.

Become an Editor for Ink & Image!

26 Apr

Deadline of May 5!!

You are warmly invited to apply to be one of three editors of Ink & Image, our department’s scholarly journal of original art historical scholarship. They will be selecting articles for publication next spring.  Editors should feel confident about their own writing skills because they will be helping authors to clarify their essays if any clarification is needed. Editors will take responsibility for shepherding the material through the press, clearing the rights to print photographs, and dealing with the student council and the publication’s budget. Editing a serious academic journal is likely to be an excellent credential for various future jobs.  Send a letter of application including  courses taken in art history,  classics, and history, your GPA in art history, a paragraph explaining your interest in being an editor, and any previous experience of editing that you have had, e.g. on a high school yearbook or newspaper, or on a publication here at NYU or at another college.  Send your message to Prof. Krinsky, the faculty supervisor, at chk1@nyu.edu, who will confer with the present editors.
