Student receives prestigious travel fellowship

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Sahar Hosseini, graduate student enrolled in the doctoral program (Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures), received a SAHARA Travel Fellowship to take photographs of architectural projects of twentieth-century Iran that were influenced by nationalist movements and theories of the time. SAHARA is a digital image archive developed by the Society of Architectural Historians in collaboration with ARTstor. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, SAHARA contains more than 47,000 images of architecture and landscapes that were contributed by SAH members--architects, scholars, photographers, graduate students, preservationists and others who share an interest in the built world.
