Linda Dalrymple Henderson is the David Bruton, Jr. Centennial Professor in Art History, Emeritus, at The University of Texas at Austin. Her book project, Ether and the Energies of Modernism: Art, Science, and Occultism in the Early 20th Century recovers the long-overlooked history of science as popularly known in the late 19th and early 20th century, which served as a crucial stimulus for modern artists and writers as well as for the occultists to whom they often responded.
