We are delighted to announce that Professor Katie Scott has been elected a Fellow of the British Academy.
Katie is an internationally recognised scholar of early modern France, and has taught at The Courtauld since 1988. Of her many publications, her most recent is Becoming Property: Art, Theory, and Law in Early Modern France (Yale University Press, 2018), which examines the emergence the intellectual property rights in art in France from the early 16th century and the French Revolution.
Thanks to a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship, Katie is about to begin a three-year period of focused research for a book-length study provisionally titled Open City: Paris and the arts in the eighteenth century. It will address questions of space, architecture and the depiction of eighteenth-century Paris.
We offer Katie our warmest congratulations and the very best of luck as she embarks on her new project.
