Alumni Notes
Angela Wheeler
GSAPP, 2016; HI Certificate

I graduated in 2016 with a master’s degree in historic preservation and a Harriman Graduate Certificate. As a 2015 Harriman Civil Society Graduate Fellow, I worked with the Council of Europe on urban heritage initiatives in Georgia. Projects I undertook with Harriman’s support have influenced my doctoral research (on Soviet urban planning approaches to historic cities) and my recent book, Architectural Guide: Tbilisi (DOM Publishers, 2023), the first comprehensive English-language guide to architecture and urban development in Georgia’s capital city. I remain deeply grateful for the friendships, community, mentorship, and support at Harriman that sustained me through my graduate studies. Cheers from Amherst! 
