Barber wins Director’s Essay PrizeBarber wins Director’s Essay Prize6/17/2022 4:00:00 AM<p><strong>Tiffany E. Barber</strong>, assistant professor of Africana studies and art history, has been awarded the 2022 Director’s Essay Prize by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, which fosters leading research in the field of visual biography and American portraiture. Barber’s prize-winning essay, “<a href="https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00043249.2020.1724031">Narcissister, a Truly Kinky Artist</a>,” was published in the spring 2020 issue of <em>Art Journal</em>. The jury of scholars who selected her for the award cited the essay’s interdisciplinary contributions to the fields of American art, biography, history and cultural identity and called the piece “an immensely original essay, deeply researched and written with panache.” Barber will present a paper related to her essay topic at the prize ceremony in September.​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#99d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a;L0|#099d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a|Awards and Honors;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=188

Malamy Research Fellowship at the Peabody Essex Museum’s Phillips Library. Over the summer, Baker will use visual and archival material, including family papers and shipping logs, to investigate how residents of 18th-century Salem, Massachusetts, engaged with the pastel medium before and during the American Revolution.

Vause publishes essayVause publishes essay2/18/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>In the essay, "Grasping the Cross: Transforming the Body and Mind in Early Medieval England," art history Ph.D. candidate <strong>Rachael Vause</strong> addresses the questions: What can the sciences tell us about oral societies who left behind beautiful objects but no textual record? Is it possible to discern the motivations of humans of the past who shared similar bodies and brains as our own? Her essay was recently published in the volume, <em>Transmissions and Translations in Medieval Literary and Material Culture,</em> edited by Megan Henvey, Amanda Doviak and Jane Hawkes. Combining art historical methods and neuroscientific studies, she connects the body to wearable religious items, which served as powerful components in the Christian conversion of 6th-7th century England.​</p><img alt="Rachael Vause" src="/ForTheRecord%20Images/ARTH_20220218_vause_essay.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Cropped HeadshotGP0|#e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b;L0|#0e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b|Publications;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=156

Its School of Architecture is also among the most renowned schools of architecture in the world, having produced many premier architects and scholars. Professor <strong>Vimalin Rujivacharakul </strong>first received Tsinghua's visiting professorship at the School of Architecture from 2018-2021. In January 2022, her reappointment was officially confirmed. She will continue her work with her Tsinghua colleagues to develop new ways of understanding and designing vernacular architecture and site development in China. The Vernacular Architecture Unit at Tsinghua's School of Architecture has earned many accolades from both public and private sectors in China. Their efforts to promote vernacular villages and cultures have resulted in the rehabilitation and restoration of several important sites, notably the famous temple complex in the City of Songyang, which recently hosted the <a href="https://unhabitat.org/china-international-forum-on-urban-rural-linkages-highlights-health-territorial-approaches%29.">UN-Habitat Conference</a>. The team has also collaborated with international experts from England, France, Italy and the United States to explore ways in assessing and working with tangible and intangible heritage.</span><br></p><img alt="" src="/content-sub-site/PublishingImages/Noteworthy_FTR/Rujivacharakul_Foguang%20%20Site%20Visit.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Uncropped VerticalGP0|#8442c1a6-2557-4340-b895-2f7f241f6ae1;L0|#08442c1a6-2557-4340-b895-2f7f241f6ae1|Appointments;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=144
Cross facilitates installation at the Delaware Art MuseumCross facilitates installation at the Delaware Art Museum;across;1/7/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>On Dec. 9, 2021, a tour of the Delaware Art Museum’s recent reinstallation of its American galleries was facilitated by doctoral candidate <strong>Anne Cross</strong>, co-founder of the Art History Graduate Student Anti-Racism Initiative and current Lynn Herrick Sharp Curatorial Fellow at the Delaware Art Museum. Museum curators Heather Campbell Coyle, Margaret Winslow and Margaretta Frederick walked UD art history graduate students through the museum's process and fielded questions on representation, reparations and community engagement. This is the first comprehensive museum rehanging since 2005. The museum worked with a Delaware-based advisory board to reimagine the galleries, acquiring several significant pieces by women and Black artists that tell a more inclusive story of the visual arts. ​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#04611ae7-92e6-4159-9e62-ac61be0875a2;L0|#004611ae7-92e6-4159-9e62-ac61be0875a2|Performances;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=135
