This is how we feel. We feel deeply about it.

If you’re a UHPer that won a SURE Award, doing independent research, a research assistant, or otherwise doing research, let us know!

It’s a quick form just so we know what’s up.  What will we use it for? NOT SPAM! We swear.  There are occasional opportunities for researchers, and if those opportunities are a good match for what you’re doing, we want to make sure you know about them.

As a Faculty Fellow, Prof. Barbara von Barghahn-Calvetti has a budget of up to $1,000 to pay a student research assistant for this semester!  If you’re interested in doing exciting academic work (and getting paid to do it), please contact the professor directly here: bvb@gwu.edu.

You’d be assisting with:

1) a possible exhibition on the artist Juan Bautista Martinez del Mazo, a disciple of the famous Spanish master Diego Velazquez;

2) ongoing research on the Hapsburg Archduchesses of Belgium and their acquisition of tapestries;

3) early Jesuit artists/missionaries in colonial Peru;

4) reconstruction of palace interiors (Adobe Photoshop)

Of course, you’d receive  credit/acknowledgment in any future product to which you contributed. No knowledge of art history is needed, just a love of exploration.
