Linda Dalrymple Henderson was honored by the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts (SLSA) with the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award. During the award presentation at the annual conference, SLSA stated, "Her work has helped to redefine the ways in which scholars now understand the development of modern and contemporary art, particularly its relationship to science and mathematics."

Chair of the Department of Art and Art History Jack Risley remarked, “The SLSA is spot-on when they describe Dr. Henderson as ‘a model of interdisciplinary enquiry and academic generosity.’ Linda is a legendary scholar and equally known as a fierce advocate for her students.”

Henderson’s extraordinary research, the enduring impact of her mentorship, and long-time contributions to the SLSA were among the many reasons for her recognition.

“I’m thrilled and humbled at this award,” Henderson described. “In 1993, I had started regularly attending the conferences of what was then the Society for Literature and Science (SLS). Finding such a stimulating group of colleagues working across disciplinary boundaries, I began inviting art historians and artists to participate on SLS panels.”

She continued to invite over 40 colleagues to SLS events. “In 2003, we had a large enough contingent to militate for the addition of 'Arts' to the name. As a result, an important new space has been created for interchange among arts-related scholars and technology-oriented practitioners at SLSA.”

The department congratulates Henderson on this award.

“Art Historians are not only judged by the depth and originality of their research, but also for how effectively they open up intellectual possibilities for subsequent generations of scholars,” said Risley. “That is Dr. Henderson’s legacy.”
