This fellowship offers support for a postdoctoral or senior scholar to conduct research on American art and visual culture (not including architecture) prior to 1980 while in residence at the American Academy in Rome for a period of four to six months. During that time, the fellowship recipient will pursue their work in an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic freedom, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovation. Topics dealing with Italian-American exchanges and requiring firsthand exposure to collections and archives in Rome and its vicinity will be given priority.
