Barry Bergdoll and research collaborator Jean-Philippe Garric receive Alliance Program Joint Projects Grant

Barry Bergdoll (Columbia University) and Jean-Philippe Garric (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) were selected as grantees in the Alliance Program's 2018 call for Joint Projects for their project “Overlapping perspectives on an artistic correspondence: editing the Roman letters of Léon and A.L.T. Vaudoyer (1826-32)”.

Their project aims to prepare a critical edition of this correspondence by bringing together a scholarly world as vibrant and interdisciplinary as the world’s described by the Vaudoyers. Historians of architecture, of archaeology, of language, of politics are to be associated with this international project to shed light on the different aspects and to develop multi-disciplinary frames for reading the letters not only as documents but as romantic epistolary expression.
