Assistant Professor of Art History, History, and Early American Art and Material Culture Jennifer Van Horn has just been named a senior fellow for the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.. This will be a full-time research position for the 2018-2019 year. 

During her fellowship, Van Horn plans to focus on finishing her second book project, titled “Resisting the Art of Enslavement: Slavery and Portraiture in American Art, 1720-1890.” As a whole, the book examines the role enslaved African Americans played as producers and viewers of portraits in the plantation South and uncovers the importance portraiture held for newly freed African Americans who engaged in acts of iconoclasm, preservation, and patronage.
