“Astonishment” Exhibition

New College professor Marysia Galbraith, along with Polish professors Grzegorz Keczmerski and Janusz Marciniak, published a collection of works from various interdisciplinary scholars and artists titled Astonishment. Co-authors of this work include New College professors Holland Hopson, John Miller, and Amy Pirkle.

Initially, through this project they aimed to “surprise and amaze each other with iconographic ideas, sense of humor and tragedy, imagination, and artistic and literary form” and “draw attention to the current problems of individuals and societies.” The finished work very pleasantly exceeded this goal, and is a fitting tribute to the late Swiss philosopher Jeanne Hersch.
