Faculty in New York for Research and Book Signing

Dr. Julia DeLancey’s current research into melancholy in the Italian Renaissance, perhaps a manifestation of what we now call “depression,” led her to research in New York, at the New York Public Library and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  She has shared these two images taken during the research trip, funded in part by a fellowship established by former Truman State University president Barbara Dixon.

In addition to Dr. DeLancey’s research, Professor Aaron Fine’s publisher held a book signing to celebrate his newly released volume on color theory.  Here is a photograph provided to us by Dr. DeLancey, with Dr. Cole Woodcox showing off his new copy of the book.  Congratulations again to Professor Fine!
