The Philosophy and Art History Seminar Series meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff.

Elizabeth J. Petcu is an historian of early modern art and architectural culture in Europe and Latin America. Her work probes the interplay between architecture and other media as well as strategies for imitating nature during the emergence of global architecture. Elizabeth's scholarship on architecture's intercultural dynamics draws on a mixed training in the Anglophone and German spheres. After obtaining her Ph.D. from the Department of Art & Archaeology at Princeton University in 2015, she taught for two years at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Prior to this, Elizabeth held Samuel H. Kress and Fulbright Fellowships at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich, as well as curatorial research positions at Mount Holyoke College Art Museum and Princeton University Art Museum.
