Professor Shelley Rice a recipient of a Remarque/ENS Faculty Fellowship

25 Feb




Professor Shelley Rice has been named the recipient of a Remarque/ENS Faculty Fellowship for the spring of 2014, when she will be on sabbatical doing research in France. This NYU fellowship gives Professor Rice access to an office in the Remarque Institute at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris as well as library affiliation with that institution, which will be tremendously useful for her project. She will be completing book research on Albert Kahn’s Archives of the Planet, and many of the archive’s bulletins and research projects were originally produced and distributed a century ago from a base of operations in this school. Going back to this source, Rice hopes, will help her find obscure and little known material related to Kahn’s multifaceted publishing venture.


Professor Rice holds a joint appointment in the Department of Art History and the Department of Photography & Imaging of the Tisch School of the Arts.  Her lecture courses and seminars, including The Social History of Photography, The Aesthetic History of Photography, Global Issues in Contemporary Photography and Toward a Critical Vocabulary, are tremendously popular with students from across the University.
