The University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection

The University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection is the expansion of the Center for the Study of Modern Art — the museum’s nexus for academic work, scholarly exchange, and innovative interdisciplinary collaborations. Key collaborations under the newly named Center include expanding on and developing new arts curriculum and extended studies courses and seminars focused on art, art history, arts management, museum studies, cultural diplomacy, art and wellness, virtual culture, conservation, and interdisciplinary studies; co-publishing the biennial UMD-Phillips Book Prize for an unpublished manuscript presenting new research in modern or contemporary art from 1780 to the present; and digitizing the museum’s archives of 9,500 scholarly books, curatorial records, and correspondence to preserve the archives in perpetuity and make valuable educational resources easily accessible to scholars, researchers, and students around the world.

The Phillips Collection and the University of Maryland currently offer two postdoctoral fellowships. These fellowships allow the recipients to work with The Phillips’s exceptional collection of modern and contemporary art and the University of Maryland’s leadership programs in art-historical scholarship, interdisciplinary experimentation, and virtual technologies:

1. The Fellowship in Modern and Contemporary Art History supports research and teaching on topics in American, European, or non-Western art of all media from 1780 to the present.

2. The Fellowship in Virtual Culture supports research in emerging forms of virtual culture and the advancement of technology to enhance and enrich/deepen the museum visitors’ experience.
