PhD Success for Art Historian Michelle Foot

Congratulations to History of Art's Michelle Foot, for successfully defending her PhD thesis on "Modern Spiritualism and Scottish Art between 1860 and 1940". Supervised by Professor John Morrison, Michelle's research emphasises the direct cultural impact which the Modern Spiritualist movement had upon Scottish art and artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Michelle will now take up a two-year teaching fellowship in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh from August 2016 - we wish her all the best!
