Brigid Doherty
Position: Academic-Athletic Fellow

A professor in the Departments of German and Art & Archaeology, art historian Brigid Doherty has taught at Princeton since 2003. Her research and teaching focus on the interdisciplinary study of modern and contemporary art, literature, and aesthetic theory, with special emphasis on modernism in German art and literature.

A member of the Steering Committees of the Programs in Media & Modernity, European Cultural Studies, and Women’s Studies at Princeton, Doherty has been a Fellow of the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard (2006-2007), and held the inaugural Research Forum Visiting Professorship at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London (2005). Her recent publications include essays on the early 20th-century German poet Rainer Maria Rilke and contemporary artist Rosemarie Trockel, as well as an edited volume of the work of literary critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin, The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility and Other Writings on Media (2008).

Doherty is also active as a curator and critic of contemporary art, and is a contributor to Manifesta 7, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, in Trento, Italy (2008).

She lives in Princeton with her husband, Paolo Morante, and their son Luca (9), a player in the Princeton FC boys soccer program.
