Art historian wins grant from Graham Foundation to complete book on American artist Alison Knowles

August 09, 2018 • Categories: Alumni and Students

Nicole Woods, a Notre Dame assistant professor of modern and contemporary art history, has won a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Arts. One of 21 grants awarded from a pool of more than 700 applications, Woods will use the funding to complete her book on American artist Alison Knowles, the sole female founding member of the influential artist collective Fluxus. Like many female artists of her era, Knowles had limited storage space and little professional recognition, creating a challenge in surveying the breadth and impact of her work.

Butler Award

Pamela Wynne Butler, Associate Director/Director of Undergraduate Studies, Gender Studies

According to the 2018 Hancock Award selection committee, “What made Pam Butler stand out from our other wonderful award nominees were three especially noteworthy qualities: her absolute devotion to her students, the wealth of her knowledge related to gender studies, and the sheer excitement of her courses, courses that integrate community involvement and social activism with the more theoretical concerns traditional to gender studies.” Several students noted Dr. Butler’s deep commitment to praxis in her classes, and one student commented, “Our assignments were exciting because they went beyond theory and worked to make a positive impact here, in the Notre Dame community.” Dr. Butler is also well known for sharing her knowledge in gender studies with students who are not in her classes.  As one student wrote, “Students can come to Professor Butler with a vague interest or question about gender, intersectionality, race, or really anything to do with gender studies, and leave with dozens of references, a more precise understanding of their interest, and a new and meaningful connection with the most helpful professor on Notre Dame’s campus.”…
