Hollis Clayson, the Bergen Evans Professor in the Humanities at Northwestern University, will investigate connections between the landlocked lighthouse’s illuminations, visibility, and reception. A key question Clayson will ask is: did the tower’s much-debated visual prominence, in both daylight and illuminated darkness, add up to inescapability in Barthes’ first sense?
