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
