How will we be remembered?  Can our actions today affect our enduring legacies?  American expatriate artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) refused to let the press label him "the misunderstood genius of his generation." Taking his legacy into his own hands, he responded to reviews, critiqued his critics, and hired a press-clipping agency while compiling multiple scrapbooks--his first attempts at bookmaking--in preparation for his infamous, reputation-establishing publication, The Gentle Art of Making Enemies (a first edition of which is held in Tredway Library's Special Collections). 

Please join Whistler specialist Dr. Catherine Goebel for a discussion of  The Gentle Art of Making Enemies, the primary texts that influenced the work, and Whistler's best-known painting, Whistler's Mother.  Dr. Goebel's ongoing research will include an exploration of Whistler's hand-annotated scrapbooks--to be loaned by the University of Glasgow--and will also provide Augustana students with a rare opportunity to gain first-hand experience in original archival research.

Refreshments and conversation will begin at 3:45.

This is the fifth presentation in the year-long "Book Studies" lecture series, part of "From Parchment to Pixels: The Year of the Book."  The next presentation in the series will be given by Dr.  Jon Hurty, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities, as part of the Friday Conversations Series on Friday, March 28th.
