Professor Catriona MacLeod (University of Pennsylvania) visits the Department of Germanic Studies

Drawn from Professor MacLeod's current book project, Romantic Scraps: Cutouts, Collages, and Inkblots, “Double Edges” highlights the cryptic and often violent potency of papercuts by female artists associated with bourgeois salons. This alongside Karl Varnhagen von Ense’s 1814 essay “Vom Ausschneiden.”
