I’m a lecturer in Italian renaissance art history at the University of Edinburgh, and this blog is a way to get some ideas and thoughts into the public domain before committing them to print, to link to some of the activities I’m involved in, and I’m also planning to post bits and pieces of material that I come across sometimes that I can’t find a place for in articles or books, but which might be useful to other people. You are welcome to use any info – though do reference me please… You’re also very welcome to comment on my posts. There’s more information about me, and links to some of my published work at http://edinburgh.academia.edu/JillBurke
