Jonathan Schroeder, the William A. Kern Professor in Communications, co-edited with Anna Westerthal Stenport and Ester Szalczer the book August Strindberg and Visual Culture: The Emergence of Optical Modernity in Image, Text and Theatre, published by Bloomsbury Publishing in September. The book includes a chapter by Timothy Engstrom, RIT professor of philosophy, and offers insights into Strindberg as a multimedia artist whose writing is inseparable from his visual imagination and from the visual technologies of his time. This interdisciplinary research project received support from the William A. Kern endowment and a College of Liberal Arts Publication Cost Grant.
