Theodora Clarke (Department of History of Art) has been awarded a dissertation grant by the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. The grant is to undertake archival research in the Mary E. Dreier Papers housed at the library in Cambridge, Massachusetts which is essential to the completion of her doctoral thesis. The library awards significant grants to exceptional scholars whose dissertation requires the use of the library's collections which focus on the history of women in America.

Theodora's dissertation is investigating American patronage of Russian avant-garde art during the early twentieth-century and the role of the Societé Anonyme: Museum of Modern Art 1920 in New York. This was an extremely competitive grant with applicants evaluated on the significance of their research and the project's potential contribution to the advancement of knowledge.
