FACING FORWARD

Janus, whose image forms the traditional symbol of the American Academy, is the ancient Roman god of gates, thresholds and transitions. Today, at a moment of fear and foreboding in the United States and in the world, the double-faced iconography of Janus seems particularly relevant. It reminds us to look back into the past and ahead into the future, but also to deliberate what confronts us in the here and now.
