Two PhD students awarded the Principal's Early Career Mobility Scheme at Columbia University in Humanities and Social Science will be based in CCA and co-supervised by Dr Mark Richter and Dr Anselm Heinrich in CCA. 

Rachel Boyd, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art History & Archaeology, under the supervision of Dr. Pamela Smith, will work with Dr. Mark Richter in the School of Culture & Creative Arts.  Rachel plans to develop a greater understanding of technical art history through working with the Technical Art History group, and to apply this new methodology to her research on the glazed terracotta sculpture of Luca della Robbia (ca. 1400-82) and his successors.

Victoria Wiet, a PhD candidate in the Department of English & Comparative Literature, under the supervision of Dr. Sharon Marcus, will work with Dr. Anselm Heinrich in the School of Culture & Creative Arts.  Victoria plans to utilize resources held in the Scottish Theatre Archives at the University of Glasgow as she continues work on her dissertation, which focuses on Victorian theatre.
