PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES // Dr Emma Merkling
Since 2017 I have taught at undergraduate and postgraduate levels on Victorian art and histories of science, gender and sexuality, race, and class; and on art historical theory and methodology.
I have held curatorial and research roles at museums including The Frick Collection in New York and the Science Museum Group in London. You can find my most recent curatorial projects here, here, and here. I have also held editorial roles at the academic journals 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century and immediations.
