In this Research and Academic Program lecture, Michael Gaudio (University of Minnesota / Clark Professor 2023–2024) explores Native burial mounds.

In 1899, the art historian Alois Riegl declared that the content of modern art, and of landscape painting in particular, was a scientific “mood” in which the chaotic world, seen from a distance, resolves into a sense of perspective and harmony.

Clark Professor for the Academic year 2023–24, Michael Gaudio is Professor in the Department of Art History at the University of Minnesota. His research interests, which range across a broad temporal span, focus on the intersections of artistic practice, science, religion, and cultural contact in the Atlantic world.

He has written on topics that include early modern costume studies, early American natural history illustration, and thirteenth-century cartography.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
