One of the ways we realize our global mission is by supporting visiting professorships at important international academic institutions, including the Freie Universität Berlin, where eight-month visiting professorships are integrated into the curriculum and research programs of the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies. The visiting professor will devote his/her time to classroom teaching, student advising, public lecturing, the organization of symposia, and personal research. The particular setting of the John F. Kennedy Institute offers rich opportunities to students to situate their study of American art in dialogue with disciplines such as cultural studies, cultural history, literature, and sociology. The courses are also open to students enrolled at the art history departments at the Freie Universität, as well as the Humboldt Universität Berlin.
