Michele Greet, associate professor of art history, has won a prestigious award from the College Art Association in support of her book in progress. Greet is currently working on Transatlantic Encounters: Latin American Artists in Paris Between the Wars, which will be published by Yale University Press. Greet received a Millard Meiss Publication Fund grant, which supports the publication of books in the history of art and visual studies. The College Art Association describes their award:
Twice a year, CAA awards grants through the Millard Meiss Publication Fund to support book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits, but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. Thanks to the generous bequest of the late Prof. Millard Meiss, CAA began awarding these publishing grants in 1975.
Books eligible for a Meiss grant must currently be under contract with a publisher and be on a subject in the arts or art history.
