M. Elizabeth (Betsy) Boone and Lauren Lessing, Executive Editors
Recent trends in the scholarship of American Art have created a more capacious arena of study—one that accommodates and promotes voices, subjects, and approaches that might have seemed unlikely, if not unthinkable, two decades ago. Panorama began publication during this crucial period of expansion, and its commitment to methodological innovation, inclusion, and diversity springs from this fact. The existence of Panorama is a response to and also stands ready to respond to this growth in the field.
The executive editors are pleased to launch the fourth issue of Panorama, the first and only peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic publication dedicated to American art and visual culture (broadly defined) from the fifteenth century to the present day.
In the weeks leading up to the biennial gathering of the Association of Historians of American Art (AHAA) in Fort Worth this year, exclamations of AHAA! echoed throughout the Amon Carter as we prepared for attendees’ arrival in the Lone Star State.

We received some stirring, thoughtful letters in response to last issue’s Bully Pulpit, “Whither Connoisseurship?” Janet Berlo’s letter amounts to a defense of connoisseurship, which she embraces as a valuable tool for developing scholarship on extra-canonical artists and objects. Emerita faculty and graduates of CUNY’s Program in Art History met to discuss the controversy at their Americanist Art Salon. Their “Collegial Response” offers a Bully Pulpit of their own.
