B.A., Wake Forest University
Associate Professor, Eighteenth-Century Art
Douglas Fordham specializes in art of the long eighteenth century with an emphasis
on British visual culture. He is the author of British Art and the Seven Years' War: Allegiance and Autonomy (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2010) and a co-editor with Tim Barringer and Geoff Quilley of Art and the British Empire (Manchester University Press, 2007). Common themes running through his publications include the impact of political contingency on artistic form and the need to conceive of eighteenth-century art in broader geopolitical terms. He is working on a new book, Prints in the Global Eighteenth Century, which examines the relation of Western print culture to aesthetics, economics, and empire.
