The Getty Research Institute
The Getty Center

Urban Wyss, Bona comprehensio calami
This two-day intensive workshop at the Getty Research Institute is designed for doctoral candidates in art history and/or visual culture studies who are in the midst of writing dissertations. The distinctive format—in which each participant presents the project of another—provides a small group of advanced graduate students the opportunity for intensive discussion with each other and with two senior professors in the field. The goal of the workshop is to stimulate new perspectives, offer constructive critique, and situate the participants' projects in a broader art historical context.

Accommodations and some assistance with travel expenses will be provided by the Getty Research Institute.

To apply: Please send your dissertation proposal, an update on the status of your project, a current curriculum vitae, and a letter of recommendation from your thesis advisor. You must have advanced to candidacy, written at least one chapter of your dissertation, and expect to finish after 2008.

Application materials should be sent to Sabine Schlosser, Research and Education Department, Getty Research Institute, 1200 Getty Center Drive, Suite 1100, Los Angeles, CA 90049-1688.

Application materials must be received by January 22, 2008.
