Joy Cador

Joy Cador is a former ENS Teaching Fellow at Columbia University in the City of New York. She graduated from Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne University and from the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS Paris) with a MA in Art History, as well as from Sciences Po Paris where she studied politics, economics, and sociology within the scope of her MA in Public Affairs. She now works as an independent researcher: her research explores the imaginary and shifting values of marble, as both a material and as a pictorial motif, from the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace to the beginning of the 20th century. It questions center on classical reception studies, material culture studies, intermediality, and the ekphrastic writing. Joy Cador has already worked as an assistant curator and as a research assistant for curators, researchers and scholars, both in France and in the USA, and her own Master’s thesis, dealing with the Dionysian imagery of Lawrence Alma-Tadema, is going to be published.
