AHPP Receives Kress Digital Resources Grant
We are excited to announce AHTR has received a Digital Resources Grant in the amount of $56,500 from The Samuel H. Kress Foundation in continued support of its Art History Pedagogy and Practice (AHPP) Initiative. AHPP is a peer-reviewed e-journal devoted to the scholarship of teaching and learning in art history that will launch in fall 2016 (see the extensive Kress-funded research and development for the e-journal on the AHPP hub here). This generous grant, the third Kress award to AHTR, will support the design and development of the e-journal. AHPP will be hosted on the AHTR site and available as an open-access publication through Academic Works, the Digital Commons Repository of the City University of New York, made possible through a partnership with the Graduate Center, CUNY.
The Kress funding will also assist AHTR’s efforts to support art historians interested in developing discipline-specific scholarship in teaching and learning. In the coming months, AHTR will be posting information on the e-journal hub on methods used to conduct pedagogical research, and providing resources for scholars who want to present their findings in Art History Pedagogy and Practice. A call for submissions will be issued this spring in anticipation of the e-journal’s first issue in fall 2016.
We wish to thank all of our partners, advisors, and others throughout the AHTR community who have demonstrated the importance of AHPP and are helping ensure its success. We remain extremely grateful to The Kress Foundation for their continued support of this project and their on-going commitment to education innovation and digital initiatives.
