Jeanette Kohl, an associate professor and former chair of UC Riverside’s Department of the History of Art, has received a one-year fellowship at the prestigious Princeton Institute for Advanced Study based in New Jersey.

Kohl’s fellowship starts on Sept. 1 and ends on July 1, 2019, within the institute’s School of Historical Studies. She will use the year to work on her book “Facing Objects. Sculpted Portraiture in Renaissance Italy.” Kohl finished a three-year term as department chair in June. She specializes in portraiture, sculpture, and object culture of the Italian Renaissance.

“After three years as department chair, the year in Princeton is a wonderful gift,” Kohl said. “I will have time to read, write, and finish my book. Apart from that, I am looking forward to fall and winter on the East Coast, where the Christmas season feels a little more like in my country of birth, Germany.”
