Justine De Young, History of Art, recently published a peer-reviewed article on art history pedagogy for the open access e-journal Art History Pedagogy & Practice. The article, titled “Assessing Undergraduate Fashion History Research via Content Analysis,” analyzes undergraduate student essays on fashion history to determine whether the research produced can be considered reliable according to generally accepted art historical standards. She used her experience creating the Fashion History Timeline for this research.
De Young also wrote a catalog essay for the exhibition James Tissot: Fashion and Faith on view at the Legion of Honor museum in San Francisco. Her essay, titled “Tissot’s Fascination with Fashion,” argues that the artist’ interest in ruffles, ribbons, and ruching was about more than fashion. An excerpt of her essay is available on the museum’s site here.
