CCL Mellon Foundation Seminar 2019
Marlise Brown is a PhD candidate in Art History at Temple University specializing in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art and architecture. She holds an MA in Art History from the Pennsylvania State University, where she also earned a BA in Integrative Arts with a concentration in Music and Art History. Her dissertation, “The Markgräfin’s Two Bodies: The Architecture and Performance of Wilhelmine’s Bayreuth,” examines the architectural commissions of Markgräfin Wilhelmine von Bayreuth (b. 1709, r. 1735–1758) and how the visual language and theatricality of her artistic program gave her agency to perform roles that were often at odds with her limited social and political powers as a woman consort. Currently, she teaches undergraduates at Temple University in addition to working at The Barnes Foundation as a member of the Art Team. Previously, she worked for the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a Spotlight Educator, The Walters Art Museum, and Palmer Museum of Art. She will spend the next academic year (2019-2020) in Heidelberg, Germany, on a Fulbright Fellowship.
