Junior Research Fellow
Mary-Ann Middelkoop is currently a Junior Research Fellow in Modern European History at Wolfson College, Cambridge, and a PhD candidate in History at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Professor Richard J. Evans. Her research is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds. Her thesis seeks to address the politicisation of German modern art in a transnational context during the turbulent Weimar years, and focuses on German art and foreign cultural policy in the Weimar era, c. 1918-1933. Previously she read History at Utrecht University and undertook an MSc in History of Nationalism at the London School of Economics and Political Science (with distinction). Her wider research interests include the history of art and politics in twentieth century Europe, the transnational history of museums and matters of looted art and restitution. From January to April 2015 she was a visiting PhD Fellow at the Universität Konstanz.
