Since the establishment of this award in 1996, the Graham Foundation has awarded over $815,000 in recognition of promising doctoral students whose dissertations represent original and advanced scholarship in architecture with exciting potential to move the field in new directions. The applications are reviewed by a diverse panel of recognized scholars within architectural discourse. Two Carter Manny Awards are given each year, one for dissertation research and one for writing.
We are pleased to announce winner of the 2018 Carter Manny Award for writing and a $20,000 award is Kylie R. J. Seltzer, a PhD candidate at University of Pittsburgh's Department of History of Art and Architecture. Seltzer's dissertation, Housing Identities: Displaying Race and Environment in Paris, 1870–1892, analyzes the intersection of race and architecture through the subject of housing in nineteenth-century Paris.
