Associate Professor, Dept. of Art History
Indiana University Bloomington
Cordula Grewe (Indiana University Bloomington) specializes in 18th- and 19th-century European art, with emphasis on visual piety, word-image relationships, and aesthetics. Having published widely in this area, she recently completed a book titled The Arabesque from Kant to Comics (Routledge 2021), and is now pushing into the 20th and 21st century, with projects ranging from modern theo-aesthetics (Ingres to the Michael Triegel and the Leipzig School) and the body as medium (Emma Hamilton to Nicki Minaj) to art in the Third Reich and its legacy (“Nazi Cultures of Display: A Digital Reconstruction of the Great German Art Exhibition and the Degenerate Art Show;” digital humanities). Her numerous grants include fellowships by the Institute for Advanced Study, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Getty Research Institute and Institute for Digital Art & Humanities (IU Bloomington). She is a founding Board Member of the Internationales Zentrum für Klassikforschung, Weimar (Germany), and a membre associée de la Équipe d’accueil InTRu (“Interactions, transferts, ruptures artistiques et culturels”) at the Université François-Rabelais, Tours (France).
