Associate Professor Jonathan Ribner’s Work Recognized by the National Academy of Sciences, The Boston Globe, and CNN

Associate Professor Jonathan Ribner contributed to a podcast for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was interviewed by The Boston Globe and CNN, and was mentioned in an article in Artnet News. The podcast, interviews, and article were occasioned by a groundbreaking study by two renowned climate scientists Peter Huybers (Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences and Environmental Science and Engineering, Harvard University and MacArthur Fellowship recipient) and Anna Lea Albright (Laboratory of Dynamic Meteorology, Sorbonne and École nationale supérieure, Paris) in PNAS 120, no. 6 (January 31, 2023). The study by Huybers and Albright validates an argument regarding the artistic impact of air pollution that Ribner made nearly two decades ago in the essay, “The Poetics of Pollution,” contributed to the catalogue of the exhibition by Katharine Lochnan Turner Whistler Monet: Impressionist Visions (Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Tate Britain, London; and Grand-Palais, Paris, 2004-05).
