Thyssen Wins Fulbright Grant
Esther Thyssen (Assistant Professor, History of Art + Visual Culture) has been awarded a Fulbright Grant for Spring 2018.
Thyssen’s research project considers the reception of American art in Romania during the years of communist regimes prior to 1989. The Center for American Studies at the University of Bucharest, Romania will also host two courses to be taught by Thyssen, American Art since 1945 and Social Environments: Art, Craft, and Community. The course on Social Environments was developed with a summer grant from RISD Global in 2015, and was taught in History of Arts + Visual Culture in Fall 2016.
