Dr Alexander Marr

Dr Alexander Marr

Director of Studies

Dr Marr is University Lecturer in the History of Art, 1400-1700.

He specialises in Early Modern art and architecture, particularly their intellectual and scientific aspects, and is currently writing a book about the visual culture of Elizabethan and Jacobean England.

As Director of Studies Dr Marr is responsible for choosing the best supervisors to work with you depending on the papers that you choose. He works closely with students to ensure the Library is well stocked with the books required for the course, and meets regularly with students throughout the year to ensure their work is progressing smoothly.

 

All History of Art teaching is organised by the Faculty and often involves on-site study in museums or historic buildings, as well as lectures, seminars and supervisions. A typical Part I student can expect the following in their first year:

Paper 1 Objects (Michaelmas, Lent and Easter Terms)

  • Two on-site seminars per week (usually in a museum or a particular building in town)

Paper 4/5 Meaning of Art and Architecture (Michaelmas) AND Paper 2/3 Making of Art (Lent)

  • One class-based seminar
  • Three lectures per week
  • One supervision per week
  • One essay per week

All Part I students have a one-hour supervision for the short dissertation during Lent Term.
