Picture Book Romance

An interview with Anne Rudloff Stanton, Associate Professor, Department of Art History and Archaeology

Anne Rudloff Stanton loves romance. She loves the way it looks, the way it sounds, and the way it smells—but only when it’s found in the margins of 14th-century books. The professor of Art History and Archaeology describes one example—a small drawing of a man leaving a woman—and she leans forward as if she were talking about a mutual friend of ours. “There’s this long sequence of the story of Moses, who, as you may not know, was married before he married Zipporah,” she begins. “He first married the daughter of the king of Ethiopia.”

The Benefits of Dual Citizenship for an International Career

From an interview with S. I. Strong, Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law; Senior Fellow, Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution

Though Dr. Strong advises students, “don’t have my career, have your own; follow the path that makes you happy,” she shares how obtaining dual citizenship in both the United States and the United Kingdom allowed her to practice law in England at a time when few Americans were able to do so.

Isabella of France

From an interview with Anne Rudloff Stanton, Associate Professor, Department of Art History and Archaeology

Stanton has also researched Isabella of France, a powerful queen who forced her husband to abdicate his throne in favor of their son. Because the boy was too young to assume the kingship, she ruled in his place for about three years. Stanton is learning much about Isabella by looking at her things, specifically the narrative art in the margins of her books.

Linda Blockus, Research isn’t all about the work

From an interview with Linda Blockus, Director of Undergraduate Research

Some of the images that people have about research include laboratories, as well as boring and solitary confinement. Well, Blockus tries to dispel some of these misconceptions. These undergraduate researchers have an opportunity to work one-on-one with researchers from a variety of countries (including Pakistan, South Korea, Australia, England, and Israel). “It really helps broaden their understanding of how science is a global experience” says Blockus. “The students are really working in a team environment, learning how to interact with other people on projects.”
