Dr Tom Nickson Appointed Lecturer in Medieval Art and Architecture at the Courtauld Institute

The Courtauld Institute of Art is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Tom Nickson to the post of Lecturer in Medieval Art and Architecture.

Dr Nickson (BA Cambridge 2003; MA Courtauld 2005; PhD Courtauld 2009) is currently a Lecturer at the University of York where he is also Director of the Medieval Research School. He brings to his teaching and research a wide knowledge of medieval architecture from across Europe and the Mediterranean, along with his particular focus on the material cultures of medieval Iberia. His recent work interrogates the connections between art and belief in this area, particularly within the context of encounters between the Christian, Islamic and Jewish traditions. Dr Nickson has published in a wide range of journals and is currently preparing a major monographic study of Toledo Cathedral, building on his PhD dissertation. He will take up his post in September 2012.
