Research Interests

My main, current research interests lie in the field of the German-speaking avant-garde of the period ca. 1910-1933. In particular, I work on many aspects of Zurich Dada, Dada in Germany, Expressionism, ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ and the wider literary and visual culture of the Weimar Republic. More broadly, I also work on aspects of the politics of post-war German art in both the Federal Republic and the German Democratic Republic and I have an interest in 20th-century European architecture. The focus of my research and teaching is on the relationship between art and politics. Most recently, I have been developing my interest in the left-wing avant-garde’s engagement with German history during the First World War and inter-war period.  


Grants


Supervision

I am currently supervising doctoral candidates working on the field of Weimar-era visual culture. I would be very willing to discuss the possibility of supervising doctoral research in any aspect of German art and visual culture of the period 1871-1989. 

Previous students:

  • Mark Hobbs: 'Representations of Berlin in the 'Stability' Period of the Weimar Republic (1924-30)

 

 

 


Teaching

A significant proportion of my teaching is on the MLitt programme Art: Politics: Transgression – the Twentieth-Century Avant-Gardes. I run a specialist course dedicated to Dada in Zurich and Berlin and contribute to the Core programmes of this and other postgraduate taught degree programmes.

I teach a year-long course at Senior Honours level entitled ‘Art and Politics in Weimar Germany’ and a semester-long course at Junior Honours level called ‘German Art in the Era of the Cold War’. At First Year level I teach on the Northern Renaissance and European Modernism. In the past I have taught other courses on a wide range of topics, including on Modern Architecture.
