Senior Julia DeFabo's Bard experience has taken her to unexpected places. A student athlete playing for Bard's tennis team, she came to the College planning to study sociology or human rights. Instead she developed an unexpected interest in African art, particularly how it is curated and discussed from a Western perspective. The Pennsylvania native has since studied in France and Senegal and plans to pursue a Ph.D. in African art history after graduation. 11-03-2013 http://www.bardathletics.com/awards.aspx?aow=10
