Mellon Foundation, Terra Foundation for American Art, Getty Research Institute, and a Fulbright Award. Publications include: Bauhaus Construct: Fashioning Identity, Discourse, and Modernism, a volume co-edited with Robin Schuldenfrei; a special issue of the journal Art in Translation on the theme of “Translation and Architecture,” co-edited with Karen Koehler; and Josef Albers, Late Modernism, and Pedagogic Form, a monograph published by the University of Chicago Press.
