Ashby, Charlotte

PhD student, University of St Andrews.

I received a first class MA in Art History form the University of St Andrews in 2001. My MA thesis examined the expression of national identity in Finnish architecture around 1900. I am currently working towards a Ph.D. in the same field. I am also the editor of Inferno, a journal for post-graduate research in the field of art history. My research focuses on the use of architecture and interior design as statements of identity. This encompasses the transion from Historicism, through National Romanticism and Art Nouveau, to the beginings of Nordic Classicism. My thesis, The Expression of Identity in Finnish Commercial Architecture: The Bank Building of Gustaf Nyström and Vilho Penttilä - 1895-1915, examines the techniques used by these two architects to convey the various identities appropriate for different institutions. The expression of national identity was particularly important, but different forms of regional and civic identity and class and language group identity are also present within the designs.

Dowson, Thomas A

Lecturer, School of Art History and Archaeology, University of Manchester

My principal area of research is prehistoric rock art. I have studied first-hand, and published many articles and books on the rock art of Africa, Europe and America. My research has shown that using appropriate ethnographies the rock arts of Africa and the Americas are not only there 'to fascinate students of aesthetic form' as some art historians believe. We are in fact in a very strong position to construct very complex understandings of these traditions. So too, using appropriate methodolgies, the Palaeolithic cave art is not beyond sensible interpretation. I am also interested in the disciplinary intersections of art history and archaeology - and advocate an archaeology of art that challenges the eurocentric 'story of art'. This research necessarily involves examining critically such concepts as 'African art', exploring how these traditions are represented in the West.

Zhang, Hongxing

Lecturer of History of Art, University of Edinburgh and Curator of Chinese Art, National Museums of Scotland. Zhang Hongxing has been developing a project on art historical problems of international scope from a regional point of view. Research topics include the mutual influences of artistic practices among the three countries of East Asia during the period from the 17th to early 20th century, the short-lived Pan-Asianism in East Asian and Indian art history at the turn of the 20th century, and the representation of East Asian art as disparate traditions in modern historiography. The project aspires to make an important contribution to the debate on globalisation of art and art history. Its outcome will be an international symposium in 2005, followed by a major exhibition in 2007. He is also currently revising a monograph manuscript on issues of commercialisation, nationalism and colonial modernity in modern Chinese history, focused on the Manchu court's 1886 commission of a series of battle paintings commemorating the military victory over the Taiping Rebellion (Brill, Leiden, 2004).
