MSamu HeadshotMargaret Samu, adjunct assistant professor of art history at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women, has been awarded a Summer Fellowship in Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington, D.C. Administered by Harvard University, Dumbarton Oaks is a research institute and collection that supports work on Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies. She will spend June and July there working on her project, titled “Baroque Sculpture Display in Peter the Great’s Summer Garden.” Samu plans to use the research she conducts this summer to complete her book manuscript, as well as to develop a new project on the display of sculpture in Baroque gardens in eighteenth-century Russia.

“I look forward to using the new material on gardens from this summer the next time I teach Baroque and eighteenth-century art,” said Samu. “Students always enjoy hearing about their professors’ current research.”
