Dr Craig Staff – Presenter at #ALDCon21
Association for Learning Development in Higher Education Conference 2021
Presenter: Dr Craig Staff
Institution: University of Northampton
Dr Craig Staff is Reader in Fine Art and the programme leader for the MA Fine Art at the University of Northampton. In addition to having published on the intellectual histories of modernism, the broad focus of his recent research has considered how time is written into the work of art. His study Retroactivity and Contemporary Art, published in 2018 by Bloomsbury, considers contemporary art’s relationship with both history and historical materials. His next research monograph, forthcoming on Intellect, seeks to examine the notion, following Jean-François Lyotard, that paintings function as ‘sites of time.’
