New Fellows’ Presentation
The Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History comprises two departments and two research groups with a great variety of methodological, historical, and geographical perspectives and themes, ranging from “Cities and Spaces in Premodernity” to “Art of the Modern Age in a Global Context”, and from “Visualizing Science in Media Revolutions” to “Decay, Loss, and Conservation in Art History”. The Institute hosts fellows from diverse regions and backgrounds both at a pre-doc and a post-doc level.

On the occasion of the “New Fellows’ Presentation”, the fellows who have recently joined the Institute will briefly introduce the topic and discuss key questions of their projects. The purpose is to build vibrant intellectual exchanges between the community of the Bibliotheca Hertziana and those of the Rome-based international institutions and Universities’ Graduate Schools.
