Professor Marsha Morton was recently elected to a second term as President of the organization, the Historians of German and Central European Art and Architecture (HGCEA).

Professor Morton presented a talk, “Buyer’s Remorse: Money, Modernity, and the German Public,’ at the CAA conference in Chicago. Her paper was part of the session “The Image of Nineteenth-Century Money,” chaired by Andre Dombrowski and sponsored by the Art Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art. Her paper looked at visualizations of the 1873 financial crash in the popular press and the design of the Mark paper currency for the new German Reich.
