In May, Ivan Gaskell published “Works of Art and Mere Real Things—Again,” British Journal of Aesthetics 60, 2020, pp. 131-149, and, as editor with Sarah Anne Carter, The Oxford Handbook of History and Material Culture (Oxford University Press). Owing to the pandemic, he was unable to take up his annual two-month residency as Permanent Fellow of the Lichtenberg-Kolleg (Advanced Study Institute) of the Georg-August University, Göttingen. Instead, he rusticated at his residence in Lexington, Massachusetts, working on philosophical puzzles.

In July, Nina Stritzler-Levine joined BGC Faculty as Professor of Curatorial Practice. This follows BGC’s new model for the Gallery to integrate research, teaching, and exhibitions.

In September, BGC welcomed three new fellows, Beeta Baghoolizadeh, Elizabeth Guffey, and Ali Karjoo-Ravary. Meet them here.
