        Subject: Graduate Fellowship in Digital Art History

The Art, Art History & Visual Studies Department at Duke University is pleased
to announce the Samuel H. Kress Foundation Graduate Fellowship in Digital Art
History. The fellowship for $30,000 will help to offset the cost for an entering
student in our Masters (MA) program in Digital Art History and Computational
Media. The fellowship is specifically meant for populations of students often
underrepresented in digital art history including people of color, first
generation college students, and women. Duke is an ideal institution to receive
this specialized intellectual training to prepare the student for success in
rigorous PhD programs in art history and visual studies. For full details on the
program see https://aahvs.duke.edu/graduate/MA-historical-cultural-

Through this fellowship we intend to help diversify our field and to develop
sophisticated, and rigorous computational work. Our MA is specifically targeted
to address art historical questions in conjunction with area computational and
cultural specialists at Duke.

The Samuel H. Kress Foundation has made extraordinary contributions in the last
decade to the support of new digital art history initiatives. This Kress
Graduate Fellowship fosters and strengthens the connection between art
historical research and the broader field of Digital Humanities. It builds off
of the tested curriculum of the MA in Digital Art History & Computational Media
while guiding the student to future success in an art history and visual studies

Our goals are:

1) To increase the opportunities of underrepresented populations for
participation in Digital Humanities

2) To improve the chances of MA art historians to enter a high-level art history
and visual studies PhD program or succeed in digital areas once they are in such
a program, especially to prepare them for university careers

3) To strengthen the diversity of art history as a discipline

4) To expand digital art history as a subfield

Candidates who would like to be considered for this opportunity should apply to
the MA in Digital Art History & Computational Media and express their explicit
interest in their application for pursuing advanced work in an art history and
visual studies PhD program.
