The Barr Smith Library and the Cowan Grant are pleased to announce that PhD Art History candidate Dana Rehn is the successful applicant for the 2017 Bill Cowan Barr Smith Library Fellowship from a strong field of candidates.
For Dana’s application, she demonstrated how invaluable the Barr Smith Library collection is to her research. Dana’s thesis consults a vast cross-section of fields from the library including classical poems, Reformation history, witchcraft, science and pictorial prints from the art historical collection.
Winning this fellowship means that Dana can exclusively work on her research in her final and most important year of candidature. Furthermore, this fellowship is acknowledgement of Dana’s work. Congratulations Dana!
Dana’s thesis examines the motif of the canine-human hybrid in German Renaissance prints with the preliminary title of ‘The Big Bad Wolf: representations of the “Other” in German Renaissance Prints.’
