The doctoral student in art history Véronique Lacroix (BA in fashion management and design, 2017; MA history, 2020), who has just started her postgraduate studies in co-supervision with the University of Paris-Sorbonne, is the fourth winner of the Luc-d’Iberville-Moreau scholarship. Her research, directed by professor of the Department of Art History Valérie Angenot, focuses on the representation of royal women in ancient Egypt and its borrowings from typically male iconography.
The $ 60,000 grant will enable Véronique Lacroix to travel to Paris as part of her co-supervision and to perfect her knowledge of Egyptology. “I will have to go there three times for periods of three months,” explains the doctoral student. The stock market takes a whole financial burden off me. I will be able to concentrate on my research. ”
Created thanks to a major donation from the Luc-d’Iberville-Moreau Foundation, the scholarship honors the memory of Luc d’Iberville Moreau (1935-2016), who was a professor at UQAM, director and chief curator of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Montreal and curator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The scholarship encourages doctoral studies in the fields of the history of decorative arts, architecture, landscape and design. “It’s great to have a fund to allow us to push our research further,” says Véronique Lacroix. I would like to thank the donor for having thought of us and for allowing us to share knowledge from Montreal to other universities. ”
