Dr Angela Morelli

Art history tutor

I studied the History of Art and Architecture at the University of Manchester, Classics and Ancient History (MA) at Swansea University and Archaeology (PhD) at the University of Wales, Newport.

I have taught art history since 2001 on various subjects and periods ranging from Ancient Greek and Roman art, Medieval, Tudor and Renaissance to Victorian art and representations of gender in twentieth and twenty first century art and photography.

Professional memberships

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Research interests include: the use and reuse of classical themes and characters within the history of art as it covers numerous periods and genres.

I am also interested in nineteenth century art with particular reference to interpretations and perceptions of social history including portrayals relating to mental health, crime and funerary art.

I published my first book in 2009: Roman Britain and Classical Deities: Gender and Sexuality in Roman Art. Oxford: Archaeopress (British Archaeological Reports British Series), and am currently working on my second (Romano-British Art).
