Lauren Applebaum, Doctoral Candidate, Art History, is one of the 2015 Luce/American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Fellowship Recipients for her dissertation entitled: Elusive Matter, Material Bodies: American Art in the Age of Electronic Mediation, 1865-1918.

The Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Dissertation Fellowships in American Art are awarded to graduate students in any stage of Ph.D. dissertation research or writing, for scholarship on a topic in the history of the visual arts of the United States. Although the topic may be historically and/or theoretically grounded, attention to the art object and/or image should be foremost.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
