Katy Barkan Awarded 2020 New Rome Prize

Jul 23, 2020

Congratulations to faculty member Katy Barkan who was recently awarded the 2020 New Rome Prize in Architecture!

For over a century, the American Academy in Rome has awarded the Rome Prize to support innovative and cross-disciplinary work in the arts and humanities. Each year, the prize is awarded to about thirty artists and scholars who represent the highest standard of excellence and who are in the early or middle stages of their careers.

Barkan's proposal, Obelisks: A History of Uncertainty, looks at the unprecedented collection of obelisks that network Rome as sites of unstable architectural classification and as a point of departure for an alternative intellectual history of equivocation and uncertainty in architecture.
