Since its founding in 1993, the Bard Graduate Center has aimed to become the leading institute for the study of the cultural history of the material world through its MA and PhD programs, scholarly exhibitions, publications, seminars, and symposia. Its activities draw on methodologies and approaches from art history, architecture and design history, economic and cultural history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and archaeology. The BGC offers a number of fellowship opportunities for researchers working in these and allied areas. The fellowship programs at the Bard Graduate Center are designed to further the institution’s goal of promoting research in the areas of decorative arts, design history and material culture—what we call the “cultural history of the material world.”
