Visual Culture


David M. Lubin

The Hood Museum of Art will host its inaugural Robert L. McGrath Lecture on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 5:30 p.m. in the Arthur M. Loew Auditorium. David M. Lubin, Charlotte C. Weber Professor of Art, Wake Forest University, will present "Life After Death: JFK, Dallas, and Modern Visual Culture."

Lubin, a 1983 graduate of Yale University with a doctorate in American studies, is the author of several books including Shooting Kennedy: JFK and the Culture of Image (University of California Press, 2003); Titanic (in the BFI Modern Film Classics series, British Film Institute, 1999); Picturing a Nation: Art and Social Change in Nineteenth-Century America (1996), and Act of Portrayal: Eakins, Sargent, James (1985), both published by Yale University Press.

Recently established for the Hood Museum of Art, the Robert L. McGrath Lecture Fund has been created by an anonymous donor in honor of Professor Emeritus Robert McGrath, who retired from the Dartmouth Art History Department in 2003.  He had taught at Dartmouth since 1963, when he received his doctorate from Princeton University. He specialized initially in medieval art and later American art, the area in which he has published and lectured most extensively.
