Fall 2005 Semester Party December 9 [12.12.05]

Members of the MM&C community celebrated the end of the fall 2005 semester on Friday, December 9th at the home of Professor Matthew Lombard in Center City Philadelphia. MM&C director Carolyn Kitch wrote that the party “was one of our best-attended in a long time, and there was a wonderful variety of excellent food and drink. Many thanks go to: Matthew Lombard, who opened his home to us; everyone who brought delicious food; and the first-year MMC students who did a great job organizing the event. This was the last party we will have at Quince Street, and we are especially grateful to Matthew for his hospitality there for many years.”

Sad News: Richard Woodard has Died [10.22.05]

MM&C director Carolyn Kitch has reported the very sad news of the death of MM&C student Richard Woodard. Few details are available on what happened but Richard was reported to have died from natural causes. Carolyn was Richard’s advisor and wrote the following in a post to the MMC listserv: “As many of you know, Richard was an enthusiastic, inquisitive, and supportive student, researcher, and teacher. He had finished his coursework and was working on preparing for his exams and writing his dissertation proposal, which was to be on male body imagery in men’s magazines. I am sure that this work would have made an important contribution to gender scholarship. Certainly he will be greatly missed as a colleague and a friend.”  Letters of condolence can by sent to Richard’s mother at this address:
