DEPARTMENT APPOINTS NEW PROFESSOR SPECIALIZING IN ITALIAN RENAISSANCE ARCHITECTURE

September 22, 2020

Dr Morgan Ng will join the History of Art Department in Fall 2021 as an Assistant Professor. He researches the interplay between architecture, visual culture, and the technical sciences in Renaissance Italy and its global networks. His forthcoming book explores the deep morphological links between military architecture and other domains of sixteenth-century art and design: palaces, gardens, and urban infrastructure. He has also published on early modern architectural glass, sculptural illumination, landscape, cartography, and the graphic arts. He comes to Yale from the University of Cambridge, where he is a Junior Research Fellow at St. John’s College. He received his PhD from Harvard and his Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell. Morgan writes “I look forward to building upon Yale’s formidable tradition in architectural history, and its commitment to scholarship and teaching that cut across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.”
