Congratulations to all our students for surviving the end of the semester! Suffice to say, it left many book-strewn apartments in its wake. As we look forward to next year, we’re excited to see more of our students receive prestigious dissertation fellowships for 2015-2016:
- Andrianna Campbell will hold a Schomburg Archival Dissertation Fellowship at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture for her dissertation project on Norman Lewis. She will take advantage of the Center’s wide-ranging holdings on Lewis, which include un-transcribed interviews, exhibition catalogues and photographs of the artist and his colleagues. More information on the Schomburg’s Archival Dissertation Fellowship Program can be found here.
- Randall Edwards has received a Henry Luce Foundation / ACLS Dissertation Fellowship in American Art for his dissertation “Dennis Oppenheim: Sites, 1967-75.” A synopsis of his project, which examines Oppenheim in relationship to Conceptual Art, can be read here. Luce / ACLS Fellowships are awarded to graduate students for scholarship on a topic in the history of the visual arts of the United States.
- Finally, Saisha Grayson will be a Predoctoral Fellow at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, working on her dissertation “Cellist, Catalyst, Collaborator: The Work of Charlotte Moorman, 1963–1980,” a section of which she recently presented at the annual The IFA – Frick Symposium. The American Art Museum grants awards for scholars and students to pursue research at the museum, including senior, predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships.
