I’m a PhD!

I’m very excited to announce that I passed my dissertation defense and will receive my doctorate in Art History with a certificate in women’s studies from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in June 2021!

My dissertation, The Painter and His Poets: Paul Gauguin and Interartistic Exchange, examines objects and texts that were given between Gauguin and his Symbolist literary contemporaries. For more details visit CUNY Academic Works.

Members of my dissertation committee include my adviser, Katherine Manthorne, Professor of Art History at the CUNY Graduate Center, Rose-Carol Washton Long, Professor Emeritus of Art History at the CUNY Graduate Center, Bettina Lerner, Associate Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the CUNY Graduate Center, and Ziva Amishai-Maisels, Professor of Art History, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
