The Graduate Student Lecture Series continues at 5:30pm on Wednesday, March 14, in room 127, Memorial Hall. Jennifer Raab, Associate Professor of Art History at Yale University will present “The Photographic Relic.” The lecture will focus on the photograph, “Relics of Andersonville Prison (1866),” and the significance of viewing the photograph as a relic itself, in addition to the objects being represented. 

Jennifer Raab specializes in American art and visual culture, focusing on photography, aesthetic theory, the history of science, and the relationship between literary and visual representations. Before joining the Yale faculty in 2013, she held postdoctoral fellowships at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University and at the John F. Kennedy-Institut für Nordamerikastudien, Freie Universität, Berlin. Her work has been supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Wyeth Foundation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Dumbarton Oaks, and the Terra Foundation for American Art.
