Has it already been two years? Alice Goff, Assistant Professor in History and GLL and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Michigan Society of Fellows, will leave us this summer to accept a position as Assistant Professor of History at the University of Chicago. Alice has been extremely active since her arrival in Ann Arbor, bringing her expertise on memory culture and politics to bear on many projects inside and outside the department. Besides teaching a highly innovative class on "Looting" and co-organizing a Teach-in on "What is Fascism and how does it work," Alice presented talks at the GSA, Bowdoin College, the University of Chicago and at the conference on "Vagaries of Objectivity," organized by two of our graduate students. And the best she kept for the end. Together with Associate Professor Kerstin Barndt, Alice curated the spectacular exhibition on the glass models of Rudolf and Leopold Blaschka, where glasswork artistry met with contemporary nineteenth-century natural history to represent, in delicate and extraordinary detail, rare forms of marine life.
Thank you, Alice, we will miss you!
