PCA Terra Research Program Announces Call for Applicants. Deadline September 30th


The Terra Research Program, headed by PCA Liberal Studies Department Head Barbara Montefalcone, announces its 6th call for applicants. Deadline September 30th

Every semester, PCA Liberal Studies Department Head Barbara Montefalcone, along with members of the faculty, selects PCA students across departments and offers them the opportunity to take part in a unique research program based on the Collection of the Terra Foundation for the American Art Library.

The PCA/Terra Undergraduate Research Program is suited for all students interested in the history of art. The program provides the opportunity to work closely with the Terra Library’s wonderful collection of books, have a first major experience within the academic research world, and improve one’s research, writing and presentation skills. The final workshop and presentation will also be an occasion to meet peers from French universities and compare study and research methodologies in an international and interdisciplinary context.

How to apply:

Send a cover letter and a short CV to: Barbara Montefalcone, Chair of Liberal Studies


Deadline: September 30, 2018

Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to apply!

The group of selected students will have the opportunity to work as a team and conduct high level research on a specific topic related to American Art. Free access will be given to the Terra Library Collection. A one-session training with a librarian– who will present the collection and the research facilities available at the Terra Foundation– will be included. The group will conduct research independently under the supervision of Barbara Montefalcone, Chair of the Liberal Studies Department.

Research findings will be presented in English to an audience of art history students coming from several French Universities. The partner University for the Fall 2018 session is Université Paris Ouest Nanterre-La Defense.
