Antonella Book ImageMaria Antonella Pelizzari teaches courses in the History of Photography at Hunter College, focusing on issues of cultural representation, historiography, and collecting, for both nineteenth- and twentieth-century works. Her expertise covers a wide range of subjects and time periods, such as Italian photography and culture from its beginnings to the present, nineteenth-century British colonialism, American modernism, and the interdisciplinary dialogue between photography and architecture.

She is the author of Photography and Italy (London: Reaktion Books, 2011), a historical study that represents the first and only book on this subject in English literature, which will be also published by Contrasto, Milan. She has edited the volume Traces of India: Photography, Architecture and the Politics of Representation, CCA and Yale Center for British Art, 2003 (awarded the book prize “Historians of British Art” in 2004) and has contributed essays to several books (among them, Art for Venice, London: Ivorypress, 2011; Desire for Magic: Patrick Nagatani 1978-2008, University of New Mexico Art Museum, 2010; Picturing Place: Photography and the Geographical Imagination, London and New York: I. B.Tauris, 2002; America: The New World in 19th- Century Painting, Munich, London, New York: Prestel, 1999). Her essays have been published in History of PhotographyVisual ResourcesAfterimagePerforming Arts JournalCasabellaFotologia, Photography and Culture, Perspectives.
