Martha Peacock receives Distinguished Research Award from BYU Women's Research Institute

A visual arts professor at Brigham Young University was recently awarded the 2005 BYU Women's Research Institute Distinguished Research Award.

Martha Peacock was selected from a large number of researchers nominated by their peers and department heads.

Peacock received her doctorate in the history of 17th-century Dutch art from Ohio State University in 1989.

Her research has centered on the relationship of art in the lives of women, both as artists and subjects in the Dutch Republic. Peacock has published a number of articles and essays in internationally and nationally recognized historical art journals and books.

Peacock is working on an exhibit titled "Women of Consequence in the Dutch Golden Age: Heroines, Harpies and Housewives." She is also serving as the graduate coordinator for art history at BYU.

The Women's Research Institute at BYU established the research award in 2004 with the hope of stimulating and encouraging excellence in research focusing on the needs and opportunities for women everywhere.
