We are happy to announce the awardees of our 2020 HNA Fellowships. This year, for the first time, we have awarded both pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships, in order to continue our efforts to support emerging scholars in our field.
Elizabeth Mattison, PhD candidate, University of Toronto
For the final archival research needed to complete her study of wills in Liège for the final chapter of her dissertation: Reforming Sculpture: The Prince-Bishopric of Liège, 1468–1566. The dissertation explores how the Protestant Reformation, iconoclasm, and the immigration of artists revised the understanding of sculpture taking the Prince-Bishopric of Liège and analyzes how choices of form and style, as well as the writing of art history in the sixteenth century, negotiated the conception and role of sculpture.
