Ashley E. Dunn is a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Northwestern University focusing on 19th-century French visual culture with a particular interest in print media. Her most recent museum experience includes an internship in the Department of Prints & Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago and a graduate fellowship at Northwestern’s Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art. Born in Canada and raised in Bermuda, Ashley received her Bachelor’s degree summa cum laude in French from Emory University. An internship at the Musée d’Art Américain in Giverny first sparked her interest in curatorial work and she gained subsequent experience at the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Archives of American Art, and International Arts & Artists in Washington, D.C., before completing a Master’s with distinction in history of art and visual culture at the University of Oxford. This fall, Ashley will begin research in Paris for her dissertation “Graphic Paris: A Study of Urban Etching, 1850-1880.”
