A new postdoctoral teaching fellowship program, hosted jointly by the Université Paris Nanterre and the Université Paris-Diderot, began in fall 2018. Fellows are nominated for a two-year period (2018–20 and 2020–22) and instruct American art history and visual culture to graduate students in art history and American cultural history in combination with personal research. The postdoctoral teaching program is accompanied by short-term visiting professorships offered and administered by the universities.
- The 2018–20 Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at the Université Paris Nanterre and the Université Paris-Diderot is Tatsiana Zhurauliova (PhD, Yale University).
As part of her fellowship, Dr. Zhurauliova is organizing a study day in memory of François Brunet (1960–2018) on the theme of “American Art in the 1940s: Global Currents, Local Tides.” The study day will be held on Tuesday, April 16 at the Institut national d’histoire de l’art and Wednesday, April 17 at the Université Paris Diderot. A keynote address will be given by Cécile Whiting, Professor of Art History, University of California, Irvine and Visiting Professor at the Université Paris-Diderot in spring 2019. The call for papers can be found here (French version here).
