contemporary art and the University of Maryland's leadership programs in
art-historical scholarship, interdisciplinary experimentation, and
The Fellowship in Modern and Contemporary Art History will support research and teaching on topics in American, European, or non-western art of all media from 1780 to the present.
The Fellowship in Virtual Culture will
research emerging forms of virtual culture and the advancement of
technology to enhance and enrich/deepen the museum visitor's experience.
During the academic year 2016-2017, both fellows
are expected to be in residence in Washington, DC, at the University of
Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection.
Each fellow is expected to teach on
undergraduate or graduate course at the Center or the University of
Maryland, to present at least one public lecture, and to participate in
other programs and discussions with scholars, critics, museum staff, and
