On the Passing of Linda Nochlin


ACLS mourns the passing of Linda Nochlin, our 2007 Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecturer. The lecture series, named for ACLS's first chairman, has as its subject "The Life Of Learning."

Professor Nochlin once wrote, “every art-historical bildungsroman is, in microcosm, a social history of art history, and deserves examination, however cursory, in terms of the paradigms within which, or—more rarely—against which, new art-historical writing is inevitably formulated." Her Haskins Prize Lecture entitled “Not Too Far from Brooklyn: Growing Up, Growing Old with Art” sketches her own bildungsroman. We invite you to read it in celebration of Linda Nochlin’s life of learning.
