Research interests

Pedagogy in art/design schools – history and rationale of arts teaching locally, nationally and internationally. Artistic practice and writing in East Anglia – historical and contemporary. Photographic  history and historiography

In 2015 I convened a session at the Association of Art Historians’ annual conference at UEA, entitled Envisioning East Anglia: Historical and Contemporary Representations.  Five speakers gave papers on topics related to the cultural history of East Anglia, which has been relatively untreated by art historians and in which I can see the potential for future research.
