In December, the Temple community joined Temple Japan Dean Bruce Stronach and Margery Sly, director of the Special Collections Research Center at Paley Library, to mark the dedication of the Temple University Japan Campus historical archive at Paley.

Temple Rome recently sat down with Barbara Caen, the new associate director and director of the Internship and Community Engagement program. Originally from Antwerp, Belgium, Barbara received her BA and MA in art history from the Catholic University of Leuven and held a one-year Erasmus fellowship at the University Paris IV-Sorbonne. Barbara received her PhD in art history from the University of Zürich in 2012 and held a doctoral fellowship at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and two post-doctoral fellowships: one at the Frick Art Reference Library and one at the Academia Belgica in Rome.
