About me: I am British, but I have lived extensively in France and the United States. I have a PhD in eighteenth-century British art from the Courtauld Institute in London and I was teaching there before I moved to Tel Aviv. You can find a more detailed account of my professional activities at grandjouan-cv-2016-17-pdf. I am also on linked in and on Academia.edu . I will be based in Israel until June 2018, while my husband completes a mission for the French embassy. Previous postings were in the UK, the US and Serbia.
About my book: I am currently working as an independent scholar and writing a book that is provisionally entitled Anglo-French Encounters: National Identity and Graphic Satire, c. 1688-1815. My research interests mostly focus on eighteenth-century painting and prints; on graphic satire and early modern print culture; on material culture and Anglo-French artistic and intellectual exchange in the long eighteenth century. Some of the images I write about look like this:
Upcoming in 2018:
In July, I shall be at the Courtauld Institute teaching a course on 18th-century British art for the Summer School. In the mix this year: experiencing some of London’s large-scale decorative wall paintings (such as Sir James Thornhill’s Painted Hall, 1707-26, Louis Laguerre’s murals at Marlborough House, 1713 and Hogarth’s murals at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, 1737) and taking a close look at the visual legacies of Empire in both its two and three dimensional formats.
