Inauguration of The Françoise Forster-Hahn Graduate Travel Award
The UCR History of Art Department is proud to inaugurate a new graduate student research travel grant, The Françoise Forster-Hahn Graduate Travel Award, which will be presented annually beginning in 2021. The award is sponsored by Emeritus Distinguished Professor and Distinguished Professor of Teaching Françoise Forster-Hahn, who retired from UCR in 2013 after 35 years of teaching and research in the History of Art Department. Forster-Hahn is an internationally lauded scholar of German art from the 18th-20th centuries. She was a foundational contributor to graduate studies in the department and a gracious mentor of students. The department is indebted to Françoise for her guiding intellect and her continuing, generous support of our program and students.
