Fall 2019–Winter 2020
This issue of AAR Magazine celebrates the Academy’s 125th anniversary. The issue introduces nine Residents for fall 2019, reports on a November conference in Rome on the Academy’s influence on the arts and humanities, and recognizes Life Trustee Michael C. J. Putnam, professor emeritus of classics at Brown University and a Vergil specialist, whom the Paideia Institute recently honored.
A special two-page spread presents a selection of key moments in the Academy’s history since 1894 as a visual timeline; another spread describes Encounters I, the first of a two-part exhibition that features Fellows and Residents from the 1940s to the 1980s. The issue also highlights recent awards, exhibitions, and publications by those Fellows who have returned from the Eternal City, and provides a special look at Rome, through the eyes of a longtime member of the Academy Community.
