Todd Porterfield

January - June 2001

Todd Porterfield's central interests concern the foundations of modernity in the wake of the French Revolution.  Recently, he has studied the history and tradition of British caricature, focusing on caricatures of the sacré of Napoleon and of the coronation of George IV.  This is a part of a larger project, pursued in a half-year Clark Fellowship, treating the origins of modern academic disciplines, especially the practice of art history, by looking closely at interactions not only among artists, philosophers, and critics, but also generals, journalists, curators, and politicians.
