Eighteenth-Century Studies, Winter 2019

Posted in books, journal articles, reviews by Editor on January 30, 2019

The latest issue of Eighteenth-Century Studies includes a forum in memory of Mary Sheriff, edited by Jennifer Germann and Michael Yonan. Their introduction brilliantly situates Mary’s role within eighteenth-century art history, making sense of the field in relation to ASECS (and implicitly, HECAA). It works not only as a tribute to a much loved scholar; it’s among the best institutional historiography I’ve ever encountered in just three pages. –CH
