William Stovall

William Stovall's picture

William Stovall is a graduate student in his third year. His research interests center around media of evidence in early modern European scientific discourses. In particular, he focuses on nonmimetic aspects of representation in diagrams, schematics, emblems, and icons. Just as these media operate at the border between epistemology and the visual arts, so is his work also informed by both domains. This is to say, in addition to intellectual history in the European tradition, he has a longstanding interest in printmaking and its notational systems, pursuing work in this field as well.  Before graduate study, more specifically, he began an apprenticeship with his father at the silkscreen studio Workshop, Inc., founded in Washington, DC in 1968, and where he continues to be involved as a publisher, concentrating on experimental texts.
