Welcome to my blog! I am an art historian, blogger, and aspiring curator. My aim is to show how important and relevant art history can be in our lives today and to show how much art UK Museums have to offer, especially those outside of the capital. Blogging is a way for me to connect with people, as well as to express my passion for curating and art history.
Throughout university, I have specialised in eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century studies, postcolonial studies, and queer theory. Most of my Blog & News site will be saturated with these topics, but I will also be exploring my own MA studies, volunteering, reviews of exhibitions, literature, poetry, TV shows, documentaries, films etc. I am a big fan of interdisciplinary studies thanks to my time at Sussex University!
- Eighteenth-century print culture and satire
- The slave trade in material culture and historic houses
- Enlightenment philosophy
- Post-colonial theory
- Social history in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
My aim is for this resource to be useful to anyone interested in art history or curating, and to hopefully inspire someone to take the leap into the world of museums. I also hope to share my passion and ever-growing knowledge of art history and curating. I hope you enjoy my blog and feel free to connect with me on social media!
