Felicity D. Scott is Professor of Architecture, Director of the PhD program in Architecture (History and Theory), and co-director of the program in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture (CCCP) at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University. Her work as a historian and theorist focuses on articulating genealogies of political and theoretical engagement. She questions techno-scientific, environmental, and geopolitical transformation within modern and contemporary architecture, art, and media, as well as upon the discourses, institutions and social movements that have shaped and defined these disciplines.

Helen Hills is Professor of Architectural & Art History in the Department of History of Art at the University of York. Her research interests include baroque theory; architectural history & theory; architecture & feminism; religious devotion, social class, gender and sexuality; Naples and the Italian South; affect and art; monastic architecture & the veil; materiality & miracles; post-industrial cities; urbanism. A new project on silver and its affective politics in relation to Spanish imperialism in early modern Europe and Latin America will soon be underway.

Joy Sleeman is Professor of Art History and Theory in the Slade School of Fine Art at University College London. Her research embraces aspects of the histories of sculpture and landscape. These two areas of interest coalesce in her work on the new forms of landscape art that emerged in the 1960s, often referred to as ‘Land Art’. Land art, and most particularly the work and contribution of artist in Britain, is the area of research with which her work is most consistently associated and she has published numerous articles, chapters in books and essays for exhibition catalogues related to this area
