2020 News from Holly Clayson

Pandemic 2020 has been plenty weird because, after 35 years teaching at Northwestern University, I retired on September 1st.  The best time to retire? Or the worst? My last course (spring 2020) was a grad seminar on Zoom, the June conference organized to celebrate my retirement was canceled ("postponed"), and the dream of an activity-filled retirement has of course been thwarted by COVID.  Three bright notes: my 2019 book (Illuminated Paris: Essays on Art and Lighting in the Belle Époque) continues to garner interest and reviews, my advisee Liza Oliver (Northwestern 2014 PhD) is a newly-tenured Associate Professor of Art History in the Wellesley Art Department, and our adorable 3 year old Brooklynite grandson Max will be joined by a brother in 2021.
