Enfilade Turns Twelve! Buy an Art Book!

Posted in anniversaries, site information by Editor on June 22, 2021

From the Editor

As Enfilade turns twelve (22 June), I write with wholehearted thanks! With over 1.1 million views to date—more than 3400 subscribers and 10,000 clicks each month—the site still exists because you’re still reading. And so to celebrate . . .

1) Buy an art book this week. In the world of academic art history publishing, several hundred books sold over a few days is stellar. It’s an important way to communicate that the eighteenth century is a thriving field with a vital, engaged audience. The more people who buy books addressing the eighteenth century, the easier it will be to publish your next book on the eighteenth century.

2) Renew your HECAA membership. In the normal world $30 doesn’t really count as philanthropy. For a small academic society it does. Because HECAA is registered as a 501c3, all donations are tax deductible in the United States. So send in a contribution of $100 or $5. But donate something. Student memberships are just $10. More information is here.

3) Finally, send in news you’d like to see reported!  I’m glad to post announcements about conferences, forthcoming books, journal articles, exhibitions, fellowship opportunities, &c. Just about anything except job listings. The postings readers most enjoy are inevitably original content, reports of interesting collections, house museums, resources, and the like.
