Professors Jaclynne J. Kerner (Art History) and Michael C. Machczynski (Chemistry) have been selected to participate in the third annual Summer Teachers Institute in Technical Art History. The rapidly growing, interdisciplinary field of technical art history combines traditional art historical approaches with the analytical techniques of the physical sciences, such as infrared spectroscopy and X-radiography. No more than fifteen faculty members are admitted to the program. Participants will learn creative methods for integrating technical art history into their curricula. The week-long intensive seminar is generously supported by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and will be held at Yale University in July.
