Arvi Wattel is a lecturer in the History of Art at UWA (School of Design). Before moving to Perth in 2012, he held fellowships at the Fondazione Ermitage in Ferrara, the Kunsthistorisches Institut (Max Planck Gesellschaft) in Florence, the Dutch Institute for Art History in Florence and the Royal Netherlandish Institute in Rome, and lectured at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the University of Maastricht and for Oberlin College in Arezzo.
He has published on love and sympathy in Renaissance Ferrara, and on gendered space in the Renaissance convent. Besides his research into the relationship between courtly and civic-religious space in early sixteenth-century Ferrara, his research interests include the Dutch cultural exchange with Asia in the seventeenth century and the depiction of ritual performance and identity in the Dutch colonial city of Batavia (today’s Jakarta).
