Anne Dunlop, Associate Professor, History of Art
Anne Dunlop works on Renaissance and early-modern art and culture. She came to Tulane in 2010 and is Associate Chair for Art History. Previously she taught at Yale and at Concordia University. She has also spent a term as a visiting professor at Peking University in Beijing.
Dunlop's research and teaching interests include early secular art and literature, Renaissance ideas of gender, and Europe’s relations with Asia and Africa in the Mongol era. She is the author of Painted Palaces: The Rise of Secular Art in Early Renaissance Italy (2009), and co-editor of Art and the Augustinian Order in Early-Renaissance Italy (2007).
At the core of Dunlop's work is the problem of artistic change in the years between about 1300 and 1500. This year she is co-organizing, with Jean Campbell (Emory), a research colloquium on 'Artistic Agency in Early Renaissance Italy,' which will be held at the Sterling and Francine Clark Institute in Williamstown.
Her current research projects include three books. The first, Castagno’s Crime, focuses on violence and the male figure in the work of Andrea del Castagno (c. 1419-1457). The second, Global Exchange and Artistic Change in Italy, explores the shift in European painting in the wake of the Mongol conquests, which brought new pigments, materials, and motifs into Italian art in particular through renewed contact with Asia and Africa. This work on materials has also led to a research collaboration and forthcoming co-edited volume with Christy Anderson (Toronto) and Pamela Smith (Columbia), with the working title The Matter of Renaissance Art: Materials, Technologies, Meanings.
Anne Dunlop has been a Hanna Kiel Fellow at Harvard's Villa I Tatti Center for Renaissance Studies, a Visiting Scholar at the Getty Research Institute, a Rome Award fellow at the British School at Rome, and a Commonwealth Scholar. She is also a two-time Feminae Article-of- the-Month winner, and will be a keynote speaker at the 2013 ANZAMEMS conference in Melbourne, Australia. In 2011-12 she will be speaking at Tulane's Newcomb Institute, and also at Rutgers, Harvard, Emory, and the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome.
