In the wake of the white-supremacist terrorism of August 11-13, we wish to highlight and paraphrase some of the comments of Ian Baucom, Dean of Arts and Sciences:
Be assured that the Art Department remains a space where all can pursue the dialogue that counters the lies of racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, and nativism.
We are prepared to stand up for and support those who have been singled out as targets for hatred. The courage of free thought opposing cowardice and bigotry endures and persists here despite violence.

Her dissertation, "Stories in Pictures: The Woodcut Novels of Lynd Ward and Visual Narrative in Depression-Era America" analyzes the wordless "picture books" of New York City-based printmaker Lynd Ward within the context of an emerging enthusiasm for visual storytelling among leftist and socially-engaged artists during the 1930s.

Among the undergraduate courses for which Jennifer has served as a T.A. include the survey of American Art, French Impressionism, Avant-Gardes in Art and Film, and Art Since 1945.
