Assistant Professor Sandra Zalman Receives American Association of University Women Fellowship

American Fellowships, AAUW’s oldest and largest funding program, date back to 1888 and support women scholars who are completing doctoral dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research, or finishing research for publication.
Professor Zalman plans to use her publication grant to complete her book which examines the history of Surrealism in the U.S. as a crossroads of avant-garde and popular culture that helped to shape the reception of modern art. She recently published an article on the clash between popular and avant-garde ideas of modern art in the journal Grey Room. Her work has been supported by the American Council of Learned Societies and the Andy Warhol Foundation.
