Alumna Art History at the Athens School of Fine Arts
By Athena Exarchou:
After having successfully completed my Masters degree in Art History at the University of Leiden, I went on to pursue a doctoral research position at the Athens School of Fine Arts in my homecountry, Greece. The structure and diversity of the courses I had followed in Leiden University equipped me with the necessary broadness of knowledge and scope so as to undertake the task of writing my PhD thesis on the subject of Art History in Education: ‘Teaching Art History and Visual Culture in the Greek secondary education’. I am currently in my second year of research, and hope to make a contribution to the issue of the relevance of Art History in the crisis-ridden European periphery.
