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

The Department of Art History at Tyler School of Art of Temple University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank in the specialization of the arts and visual culture of Africa and the African Diaspora, to commence Fall 2019. Though the chronological parameters of research are flexible, the ideal candidate should be engaged in methods of teaching and scholarship that study cross-cultural encounters and exchanges, examining the ways in which art is produced and circulates through networks of trade and immigration, and how its discourse is formed by the dynamics of race, colonialism, post-colonialism, and globalization. As an open rank position, the successful candidate will hold the PhD and demonstrate an appropriate level of teaching experience, scholarly research and publication. Read More

Author: tuh41424

  Students in Eric Oskey's studio class submitted designs to the Land Art Generator Initiative's Melbourne design competition this past semester. "The goal of the Land Art Generator is to accelerate the transition to post-carbon economies by providing models of renewable energy infrastructure that add value to public space, inspire, and educate—while providing equitable power to thousands of homes around the world." Students were tasked to create a design that responds to the question "What does renewable energy infrastructure look like when it is woven into the fabric of the city?"   Kyle Taveira placed 4th out of hundreds of submissions for his project Dreamtime. (Pictured above and below)  As his elements sway in the wind they generate clean energy, read more about the technology and his project here. Read More

Art Therapy Comes to Tyler

Author: Anonymous

There’s a new major coming to Tyler that many have been excited for over the past few years! In Fall 2017, Art Therapy came to campus as a new Bachelor of Arts degree. With a new major comes a lot of questions, so I took the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Lisa Kay, one of the advocates for Art Therapy as a major at Temple. Dr. Kay, along with many others, has been working on the creation of this major for some time now and was happy to answer some of the questions that I had about the major. “The major came about over a long period of time,” Dr. Kay stated. “We started to have conversations in 2013. Getting a new degree through bureaucratic channels took quite some time. Tyler Admissions fielded emails from students interested in the degree for a long time, with the Foundations Department and Visual Studies program also keeping tabs on interest from students. We moved forward after establishing that there was interest amongst the student body.” Read More
