Carlisle Native Amanda Hockensmith Wins DAAD

Amanda Hockensmith., a doctoral candidate in the History of Art Department at The Johns Hopkins University, will be headed to Germany for the 2004-2005 academic year, having earned a scholarship known as the DAAD from the German Academic Exchange Service, funded by the German government. She is one of two Johns Hopkins graduate students this spring to receive a DAAD scholarship.

Hockensmith, 29, will study the dadaist Kurt Schwitters, his multimedia art and the economic conditions of post-World War I Hanover. She is a doctoral candidate in the History of Art Department and received her bachelor's degree from Williams College.

DAAD, which stands for Deutscher Akademischer Austausch-dienst, is a private, publicly funded, self-governing organization of higher education institutions in Germany. The association promotes international academic relations and cooperation by offering mobility programs primarily for students and faculty but also for administrators and others in the higher education realm.

Hockensmith is the daughter of Dean and Christine Hockensmith of Carlisle, Pa. For more information on the DAAD program, go to www.daad.org/about/daad.htm.
