Research Areas

In This Section

The research of our art and architectural historians engages a wide range of periods, from ancient to contemporary, and regions, including East Asia, South Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. We incorporate many theoretical and methodological approaches: philosophical, anthropological, economic, narratological, psychoanalytic, queer, gender, popular cultural, political, postcolonial, and historiographical. These help to generate diverse understandings of the rich range and deep history of human artistic production and reception.
