Biographical details

Trained originally in Italian art history of the early modern period, I am now a specialist in Hispanic visual art, with particular interest in relations between the Spanish visual form of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and issues of ' blackness', 'slavery' and 'freedom', 'human diversity' and 'race', and, religion, and, intellectual in the formation of the Iberian Empire.

My current research focuses on:

  • the overlooked area of the complex specificity of slave subjectivity in the visual form
  • the visual and cultural contribution made by Afro-Spanish enslaved and freed artists between the late fifteenth- and the seventeenth  centuries in Imperial Spain.
