Tim Barringer

Tim Barringer teaches in History of Art at Yale University, and specializes in British art and art of the British Empire. At the forefront of his interests are questions of race, representation and empire, themes of the co-curated exhibition Art and Emancipation in Jamaica (Yale, 2007). This intersects with his other major interests, industrialization, class formation and Victorian art, explored in collaborations with colleagues such as Victorian Radicals (US venues 2019-22) and Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde (Tate 2012). A key concern is questions of landscape, industry and environmental destruction in Pastures Green and Dark, Satanic Mills (Princeton, 2013) and Thomas Cole’s Journey: Atlantic Crossings (Metropolitan Museum of Art, and National Gallery , 2018) and Picturesque and Sublime (Catskill, 2018).
