During the 2009–2010 academic year, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts welcomed scholars from Israel, France, Italy, the Republic of Georgia, Spain, Canada, Turkey, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The topics of their research ranged from the women warriors of Dahomey, a kingdom today in the Republic of Benin, to the art of Anglo-Swiss painter Henry Fuseli.
