Field of Study
Late Medieval and Renaissance Art History
From 1/2019 – 7/2019:

Noa Turel’s book project is focused on painter-engineers in French and Italian Renaissance courts and their role in engendering Europe’s self-perception as a technological civilization. Initially trading on the aura of machines, then associated with the Islamicate world, as exotic and wondrous, painters facilitated Europe’s global exploration and, eventually, hegemony.
