The Chicago-based Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts announced its annual call for entries for the Carter Manny Award, which supports doctoral students working on architecture-related dissertations. Named after director emeritus Carter Manny, who began working with the foundation when it was founded in 1956, the awards program has two parts: a research award of up to $15,000 and a writing award of up to $20,000. The program also may award Citations of Special Recognition. The 2016 writing award went to Hollyamber Kennedy, a student at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, in support of her dissertation, "Welt bildend: Architectures of Security and Infrastructural Modernism in Germany and Beyond, 1848–1952." The research award went to Elisabeth Narkin, a student at Duke University's Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies, to support her work, "Rearing the Royals: Architecture and the Spatialization of Royal Childhood in France, 1499–1610." Applications for the 2017 program are due by November 15.
