Dr Timothy Stott
Associate Professor in Modern and Contemporary Art History
Research interests I am a historian of contemporary art, design, and visual culture. My research has previously focussed on the ‘social turn’ in art and design from the 1960s on. This research was published as Play and Participation in Contemporary Arts Practices in 2015 and in the journals Art History, Art Journal, and Journal of Design History. In 2019, I edited a special issue of Sculpture Journal on toys and modern sculpture. Current research focuses on ecocritical art and design history, the visual culture of science, and the contribution of art/design history to the environmental humanities. Current book projects include the monograph Buckminster Fuller’s World Game and Its Legacy for Routledge (forthcoming 2021), which studies the design strategies, gameplay, and modelling techniques of the World Game and related projects from the late 1960s to the present. I am co-editor of Nervous Systems: Art, Systems, and Politics since the 1960s for Duke University Press (forthcoming 2021), a collection of essays that expand the study of systems art to address race, gender, embodiment, and the politics of global networks and infrastructures. I am Chair (2020-23) of the Environmental Humanities Working Group for the Irish Humanities Alliance at the Royal Irish Academy.
