  • Guttman Liberal Arts and Science Students Get LinkedIn and Prepared for Their Future Careers

    January 11, 2019

    The Internship Seminar, as conceived and taught by Dean Nicola Blake, prepares Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) majors for their careers after graduation. This elective course revolves around work in the field; participation in professional events, including networking with professionals; and course assignments and reflections. This type of immersion in the field is a best practice, and though still rarely applied to LAS, it is widely recommended to ease the often difficult transition from college to career-oriented employment. By leading this implementation at Guttman, Dean Blake’s Internship Seminar is paving smoother professional roads for graduates from the College’s largest major.

  • Dr. Laura Clarke, Assistant Professor of English

    January 2, 2019

    “My favorite historical couple is Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning and I plan on retracing their steps through Italy one day.”

    It is perhaps no surprise that Victorian scholar and Guttman Assistant Professor of English Dr. Laura Clarke named both of her children after literary figures. “I love books!” she exclaims with pride. Her own research focuses on the intersections between literature, philosophy, and the visual arts during the Victorian period. She is currently writing a book on the Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, who “took up photography when it was a relatively new medium and engaged in epistemological debates about what constituted art.” Dr. Clarke’s work in progress explores how Cameron’s “illustrations embody conversations with other literary works and how they represent her wider photographic theory.” More broadly, she has contributed articles to Victorian Poetry, Religion and Literature and Cleo: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, as well as a book chapter to the edited collection Carlyle and the Idea.
