Shifting Perspectives on German Renaissance Art

Collaborative Doctoral Award

In 2010 the Department of History of Art at the University of York and the National Gallery established a research partnership between curators and scholars focusing on areas of mutual interest and expertise.

As part of this collaboration, the studentship focusing on ‘Shifting Perspectives on German Renaissance Art’ will investigate how perceptions of German Renaissance art changed between the era when it was made and the era when it was collected by modern institutions like the National Gallery.

The successful doctoral student will be supervised by Dr Jeanne Nuechterlein of the Department of History of Art at the University of York and Dr Susan Foister at the National Gallery.

About the Collaborative Doctoral Awards

The National Gallery offers a small number of Collaborative Doctoral Awards, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and run in partnership with higher education institutions. These studentships focus on specific themes relevant to the Gallery's collection and wider research themes.
