Tyler Alumna, Christa DiMarco, wins Art History Award
Tyler School of Art and Architecture Art History alumna Christa DiMarco (MA ‘07, PhD, ‘15) has been awarded the Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) President's Award, which honors members who have contributed in extraordinary ways to both the Nineteenth Century Studies Association and to scholarship in interdisciplinary 19th-century studies.
“[DiMarco] is a versatile scholar and writer,” remarked Susan E. Cook, president of the NCSA. “...[She] is also a tireless advocate for the profession and professional organizations like NCSA, as well as a tireless educator.”
DiMarco’s background encompasses both fine arts and art history. She has lectured at several prestigious institutions; written for academics and general audiences; and presented at conferences on her research, which currently explores van Gogh’s two-year stay in Montmartre. She is a previous recipient of a research fellowship from the W.T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies at Vanderbilt University and serves as an associate professor in the School of Critical Studies and chair of the School of Critical and Professional Studies Curriculum Committee at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
