Doctoral Candidate Receives Prestigious Fellowship

Published January 8, 2013

deidre2Deirdre Carter, a doctoral candidate in Art History, has been selected to receive the 2013 Schallek Fellowship, which is awarded annually by the Medieval Academy of America in collaboration with the Richard III Society-American Branch.  With the support of this prestigious fellowship she will conduct research in England and complete her dissertation, “Art, History, and the Creation of Monastic Identity at Late Medieval St. Albans Abbey.”  The Schallek Fellowship provides a one-year grant of $30,000 to support Ph.D. dissertation research in any relevant discipline dealing with late-medieval Britain.  Carter’s dissertation focuses on artworks produced at late medieval St. Albans Abbey and will use an interdisciplinary approach to examine a wide range of materials, many of which have not yet been studied by art historians.
