Marlise Brown (PhD candidate, Art History) awarded a Fulbright to study in Germany

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Marlise Brown will use the Fulbright to conduct research to complete her doctoral dissertation, "The Markgrafin's Two Bodies: The Architecture and Performance of Wilhelmine's Bayreuth". Through an examination of primary source documents and the visual language of five architectural sites built under Markgrafin Wilhelmine von Bayreuth (r. 1735-1758) - three palaces, an opera house, and an outdoor theater - I investigate how Wilhelmine utlized the rhetoric of "magnificence" to establish her legacy and perform roles that were often at odds with her limited social and political powers as a woman consort. In Germany, she will work with a renowned specialist in her field of research, Dr Dagmar Eichberger, at the University of Heidelberg. She will also spend time in Bayreuth, Berlin, Munich, Bamberg, and Erlangen, to access several archival collections. Read More

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Elizabeth (PhD candidate, Art History) writes, "I am pleased to share that I have accepted a 9-month Research Residency at the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities/Centro per la Storia dell’Arte e dell’Architettura delle Città Portuali, in Naples, Italy. I will be part of an inaugural group of Ph.D. candidates invited to live and work on the grounds of the Museo e Real Bosco Capodimonte, at La Capraia. This residency will facilitate unprecedented access to resources in the city, foster professional connections with other graduates and scholars, and create a platform to share research across academic, museum, and public spheres. The residency project I have proposed to complete will contribute a vital strand to my dissertation research, which re-centers port cities, including Naples, as hubs of cultural production, to examine how art and architecture negotiated constructs of chronic infection and healing during the sixteenth century.   Read More
