The New York Renaissance Consortium has been established to take advantage of the wealth of Renaissance teaching and research in the New York metropolitan area and to create a network through which information about Renaissance events can be shared both through this webpage and our listserv. It is intended to facilitate a community among scholars, students, curators, and others with interest in the arts of the Renaissance and will also hold a number of events each season.
Professors Patricia Rubin and Michael Cole
Charles N. Howard
A Ph.D. candidate and Craig Hugh Smyth Fellow at the Institute of Fine Arts, Charles Howard is researching a dissertation on manuscript culture and frescoes in fifteenth-century Ferrara. He has been a Kirk Varnedoe Teaching Fellow at Williams College and a Fulbright Scholar in Bologna, Italy. Most recently, he was a Solow Art and Architecture Foundation intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Julia Sieman is a doctoral candidate in Art History at Columbia University, where she studies Italian Renaissance art as a Rudolf Wittkower fellow. Her dissertation, entitled “Courtiers seeming Soldiers: Bronzino and the Politics of Portraiture in 1530s Florence,” examines issues of ideology, identity, and representation during a period of social unrest. She earned her B.A. (2006) from Washington University in the fields of Art History and Spanish. Ms. Siemon has presented papers and chaired panels at the College Art Association (2010), the Sixteenth Century Scholars Conference (2010) and Renaissance Society of America (2013).
