CFP: The Terra Foundation for American Art International Essay Prize
The Terra Essay Prize recognizes excellent scholarship by a non-U.S. scholar in the field of historical American art (ca. 1500-1980). Ph.D. candidates and above are eligible to participate. Preference will be given to studies that address American art within a cross-cultural context and offer new ways of thinking about the material. A strong emphasis on visual analysis is encouraged. Manuscripts previously published in a foreign language are eligible if released within the last two years. For scholars from English-language countries, only unpublished manuscripts will be considered. The prize-winning essay will be translated and published in American Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum's scholarly journal. We are pleased to announce an increased and enhanced prize award this year: the winner will receive a $1,000 cash award and a $2,000 travel stipend to give a presentation in Washington, D.C., and meet with museum staff and fellows.
