Part-time faculty, Art History
Braden Lee Scott is a McGill University Ph.D. candidate in art history working under the supervision of Dr. Angela Vanhaelen. His dissertation project entitled Building Worlds explores the archaeological imagination in the European Renaissance. Artists and architects from Northern Europe traveled to Mediterranean cities and developed a taste for ancient artefacts, and these experiences resulted in drawings, paintings, sculpture, and buildings that reimagined actual and mythological pasts of Rome, Palestine, Egypt, Greece, and Mesopotamia.
