Announcing the 2019 Luce/ACLS Dissertation Fellows in American Art

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) has announced the 2019 Luce/ACLS Dissertation Fellows in American Art. Eleven scholars have been selected to receive support during the 2019-2020 academic year as they research and write their dissertations, which explore a wide range of topics in object- and image-based US art history.

“Since the early 1990s, this program has supported 300 exceptional emerging scholars of US art history,” said Matthew Goldfeder, director of fellowship programs at ACLS. “Luce/ACLS Dissertation Fellows have helped to shape the field of American art. Many former fellows give back to the program as senior scholars by participating in the program’s peer-review process and helping to select the promising new scholars who will continue to build the field in the coming generation.”
