Cordula van Wyhe

Senior Lecturer, History of Art Department
University of York, UK


York, UK


Cordula’s intellectual journey began in the Low Countries, where she developed her interests in seventeenth-century religious and political imagery, female spirituality, and court culture. She is committed to a humane art history that strives to understand how our visual and tactile engagement with form and matter creates meaning. Her research and teaching extends to dress history beyond early modern Europe. She is passionate about teaching as a collaborative venture of co-discovery and knowledge creation.
