Research Interests

Debbie Lewer is a specialist in modern German art and also works in the field of the intersection between art and religious faith. She has published widely on modern art, culture and politics in Germany and Switzerland and is an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research Fellow. Her work centres on the German-speaking avant-garde of the period ca. 1910-1933: Zurich Dada, Dada in Germany, German Expressionism, ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’, aspects of modern architecture and the wider literary and visual culture of the Weimar Republic. She has also worked on post-1945 German art in both the Federal Republic and the German Democratic Republic and has translated many important source texts from German into English.

In recent years the focus of Debbie’s research has been on the complex and significant relationship between theology and art history. This originated in her studies of the Dadaist Hugo Ball and the place of belief, spirituality, religion and theological concepts in histories of modernism and the avant-garde. The broader questions around interdisciplinary approaches to Art History, Faith and Theology is the focus of her work as an Associate Tutor to the MA in Theology, Imagination and Culture at Sarum College, Salisbury and much of her current writing. She is also a regular speaker and writer for wide audiences on art and faith.

Debbie is a member of the Editorial Board of the UK’s leading journal for the discipline, Art History.She is also a long-standing writer of audioguide scripts for major international museums and collections.  She is a regular speaker and occasional broadcaster for diverse public and professional audiences. She has a strong commitment to public engagement and knowledge exchange beyond academia.

Prior to joining the University of Glasgow in 2001 she held posts as a Lecturer in History of Art at University College London, at Christie’s Education, London, at Manchester University, at Manchester Metropolitan University and at the University of East Anglia. In 2007 she was a visiting lecturer at Northwestern University, Evanston USA and in 2009-10 she was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers hosted at the Institute for Art History at the University of Bonn, Germany.
