Staff Profile:Professor Paul Davies

Name::

 

Position / Job Title:
Professor
Responsibilities:

Undergraduate teaching:

I contribute to two Part 1 modules, entitled Art's histories a survey and Makers and Making: artists, architects and their practices, as well as to four Part 2 modules: Distance and Difference: perspectives on art, architecture and visual culture; Art and Power in Renaissance Italy; Altars, aristocrats and guillotines; and Other Visions: Modern and Contemporary Art and Architecture. At Part3 I teach a module called Framing Piety: architecture and the holy in Renaissance Italy.

Postgraduate teaching and supervision:

I convene two modules for the MA in the History of Art and Architecture: the core module and the research methods module. I have supervised several PhD students, both full and part-time, and I would welcome research proposals relating to Italian or Spanish architecture 1350-1650.

Areas of Interest:

My research focuses primarily on architecture in Italy 1350-1650. Particular areas of interest include centrally-planned churches and the architectural response to miracles; architecture in Venice and the Veneto; and Italian Renaissance architectural drawings. I have written (with D. Hemsoll), Michele Sanmicheli (Electa 2004), and The Paper Museum of Cassiano Dal Pozzo. A.X. Renaissance and later architecture and ornament (Royal Collection 2013), and I have edited (with D. Howard and W. Pullan Architecture and Pilgrimage1000-1500: the Southern Mediterranean and Beyond Ashgate 2013)
