I teach courses on the history of visual and material culture in Europe from 1500 through 1700, a period that is now often described as early modernity. Inquiring into the origins of modernity and how it changed our ideas about what it means to be a human being, an individual, and a citizen, these courses engage students with critical theories and debates to help them historicize today’s forms of visual representation, from selfies and memes to fashion and urban landscape.
