Susanna Berger's research and teaching explore diverse facets of art and visual culture from printed and drawn illustrations of philosophical knowledge to central works in the history of European early modern painting. Her book, The Art of Philosophy: Visual Thinking in Early Modern Europe, is under contract at Princeton University Press. This project is a transnational study of the relations between images and philosophical knowledge in Italy, England, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. The central thesis of the book is that in this period the production and contemplation of visual art were conceived as activities essential to philosophical thought, not supplementary exercises. She is currently working on three additional research projects. The first is a book, entitled Reflections on Narcissus: Art and Nature in Early Modern Europe, which examines how artists, such as Caravaggio, and philosophers differentiated artworks from works of nature. The second project explores the intersections of visual culture with mathematics and science in early modern Italy and France through a consideration of the activities of the hitherto neglected French artist and mathematician Philippe de la Hire (1640–1718). In addition, she is collaborating with Daniel Garber on an edited volume, entitled Teaching Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century: Text and Image. Berger’s articles are published in The Art Bulletin, The Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, Word & Image, Intellectual History Review, The British Art Journal, and elsewhere. During her doctoral studies she held a Samuel H. Kress Fellowship from the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., a Professional-Development Fellowship in Art History from the College Art Association, and a Junior Research Fellowship at St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford. At Princeton, Berger has lectured on Greek, Roman, medieval, and early modern art and philosophy for “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Western Culture.” In the Department of Art and Archaeology, she offers courses on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century visual art. Berger is also the Resident Faculty Fellow of Mathey College and teaches as a volunteer in the Prison Teaching Initiative in New Jersey.
