Lectures by Art Historian Catherine Scallen Part of New DVD Collection
Case Western Reserve University art historian Catherine Scallen has a new audience for her lectures on Renaissance art. She recently recorded 36 lectures for the Teaching Company's new DVD course, Art of the Northern Renaissance, which is available to lifelong learners interested in exploring and understanding Renaissance art.
After a rigorous audition process, Scallen, associate professor in the Department of Art History, was chosen to join an elite group -- the top one percent of the nation's college and university faculty who comprise the Teaching Company's roster. Those selected have their lectures recorded and produced in CD or DVD format for general public distribution to those interested in continuing to learn through self-study programs. She is the first professor from Case Western Reserve University to produce a course with the Teaching Company. Read more.
