This month, all of our Good News comes from members of the MAA Council. Congratulations!
Elina Gertsman’s monograph Absent Image has been awarded the College Art Association’s Charles Rufus Morey Award for the most distinguished art history book of the year.
Tracy Chapman Hamilton has been awarded the 2022 Bonnie Wheeler Fellowship. Hamilton will receive the $25,000 fellowship and the support of a mentor in her field as she completes her research that explores questions of gender in premodern Europe and the Mediterranean. The Wheeler Fellowship will help her complete a book on The Ceremonial Landscape: Art, Gender, and Geography in Late Medieval Europe and the Mediterranean. In it, Hamilton studies how women patrons of the Late Capetian and early Valois periods perceived, celebrated, and manipulated events such as weddings, tournaments, pilgrimages, funerals, and foundation ceremonies to create visual backdrops for a geographical web of objects they created, exchanged, and commissioned.
Sara Lipton will be a member of the School of Historical Studies at the Princeton IAS in Fall 2022, and a Visiting Fellow at All Souls College Oxford in Spring 2023.
