In December 2020, Winterthur published Erica Wilson: A Life in Stitches co-authored by BGC PhD candidate Anne Hilker and Winterthur’s senior curator of textiles emerita, Linda Eaton. The publication coincides with a pandemic pivot to an online exhibition about Wilson. (Regretfully, the book’s print edition is currently unavailable due to a temporary halt on the publisher’s retail operations.) Hilker contributed two interviews about Wilson for Catherine Whalen’s oral history project: one about Wilson and her widower, Vladimir Kagan, the other with Wilson’s shop and seminar manager, Edith Bouriez.

First-year BGC MA student, Mackensie Griffin, will be published in the forthcoming spring issue of Gastronomica-The Journal for Food Studies with a piece titled “A Seat at the Table: The Western Dining Table as a Symbol of Power.”

BGC PhD candidate Sarah Scaturro recently co-authored an article in VoCA Journal about disability in art conservation.
