Assistant Professor of Art and Art History Amy Hamlin will deliver the 2013 Goodman Lecture with a focus on artist Max Beckmann.

Her address, “Iconography and Iconology: Interpreting “The Synagogue” by Max Beckmann” will be Tuesday, April 9 at 7 p.m.

Beckmann was the subject of Hamlin’s doctoral dissertation at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. She is currently writing a book focusing on Beckmann and his impact on art history.  A second book by Hamlin, the anthology, “Methodological Studies of Christianity in the History of Art” will be published later this year.

Hamlin was honored in May 2012 with a St. Catherine University Faculty of the Year Award for her effectiveness as a teacher and high academic standards as well as providing quality mentoring and advising to students.
