Christy Wahl, Ph.D. Candidate, was awarded a doctoral fellowship through the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies, a residential program funded and administered by the Freie Universität Berlin, one of the nation’s leading research universities. The Berlin Program is an interdisciplinary program that annually hosts twelve researchers from different North American universities and departments. The selection of fellows is a transatlantic process and since the program’s inception in 1986 has hosted more than 300 scholars. Christy represents one of fourteen UW-Madison students selected for the Berlin Program during its thirty-year tenure, but is the first student from UW-Madison’s Department of Art History to receive this prestigious fellowship. From October 2017 to July 2018, Christy will participate in program colloquia and dissertation research in Berlin, Germany.
