After two years as a visiting member of the faculty, Leslie Geddes has been promoted to assistant professor.
Leslie Geddes specializes in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture. She received her Ph.D. in the history of art from Princeton University in 2014. Prof. Geddes was awarded the 2016 Jane Faggen Ph.D. Dissertation Prize in Art and Archaeology, Princeton University. Her research has been supported by a grant from the Kluge Foundation, a Donald and Mary Hyde Fellowship, and a Readership in Renaissance Studies at Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti in Florence.
She looks forward to continuing to teach a range of courses on Italian Renaissance art—from classes featuring major figures such as Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo, and Michelangelo to seminars on topics such as villa architecture, courtly competition, and the role of printmaking in artistic and scientific invention. She's delighted to work closely with students interested in the early modern period.
