Susanna Caviglia is Assistant Professor of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. She is the author of Charles-Joseph Natoire, 1700–1777 (Arthena, 2012), and History, painting and the seriousness of pleasure in the Age of Louis XV (Oxford Studies in the Enlightenment & Liverpool University Press, 2020). She has also published three edited volumes: L’événement tragiqueaux époques moderne et contemporaine: définition, représentations (with Michel Cassan, Presses Universitaires de Limoges, 2009), Le prince et les arts en France et en Italie, XIVe-XVIIIe siècles (Presses Universitaires de Limoges, 2011), and Body Narratives: Motion and Emotion in the French Enlightenment (Brepols, 2017). Before joining the Duke faculty in 2017, Caviglia taught at the University of Limoges (France) and the University of Chicago. In France, she acquired curatorial expertise working at the Centre Georges Pompidou, the musée Condé in Chantilly, and the musée du Louvre; she curated the exhibition Charles-Joseph Natoire (1700–1777), le dessin à l’origine de la création artistique at the musée des Beaux-Arts in Nîmes (2012). Caviglia is the Editor-in-Chief of the series The Body in Art (Brepols, 2017-). Her current project is entitled “Wandering in Rome: French travelers and the image of the early modern city,” in collaboration with Niall Atkinson (University of Chicago). Tracing the movements of French travelers to Rome, the book will reinterpret the ways in which mobile viewers reconceived and represented an emerging sense of both the history and future of Rome as a modern imperial capital. During her stay at Bard Graduate Center, she will concentrate on how the sensorial experience of Rome points to the changing relationships between the city, its cultural monuments, and the foreign visitor.
