Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

Three main concerns animate Kate Nichols' research. First, viewer interactions with ancient and modern sculpture and painting in the new Victorian contexts of art museums, International Exhibitions, and emergent consumer and sporting cultures in Britain and Australia. Second, the depiction of race, class, gender and sexuality in British biblical and classical subject painting c.1865-1912. Finally, the relationship between art, labour and new technologies in the long nineteenth century.

Dr Nichols welcomes enquiries from prospective postgraduate students hoping to undertake research relating to her research and teaching interests.
