Larne Abse Gogarty is the 2016–2018 Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at the Humboldt Universität, Berlin, where she will be working on a project entitled “Group work: sculpture, performance and politics in the United States, 1950–1980.”

Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in Europe

In pursuit of its global mission, the Terra Foundation has recently expanded opportunities for the study of historical American art in Europe, including a new teaching program at Humboldt Universität Berlin. This postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Art and Visual History will allow two postdoctoral fellows to teach and engage in research on American art history over a two-year period each (2016–18 and 2018–20). The courses will also be open to students from the Freie Universität Berlin.

The 2016–18 Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at Humboldt Universität Berlin will be Larne Abse Gogarty, who completed her PhD at University College London in 2015.

From 2009 to 2015, the Terra Foundation offered postdoctoral teaching fellowships at the Courtauld Institute of Art, in London; and Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art (INHA), in Paris.
