James J. Kimble, PhD, Associate Professor of Communication & the
Arts, has been named a Senior Fellow by the Norman Rockwell Center for
American Visual Studies for the 2013-2014 school year, according to an
announcement by Dr. Joyce K. Schiller, Rockwell Center curator.
The fellowship will foster Kimble's archival research into several
recurring visual characters on the American home front, including
Rockwell's own Willie Gillis. The research will take place in
Stockbridge, Massachusetts; Storrs, Connecticut, and St. Louis,
Missouri. Upon completion of the research, Kimble will deliver a public
lecture at the Norman Rockwell museum, with publication in a scholarly
journal to follow.
Dr. Kimble is one of only two Rockwell Center Senior Fellows this
