Frankie researches attitudes towards the Renaissance at the turn of the twentieth century. They received their BA and MPhil in History of Art from Cambridge, and are currently studying towards a PhD there. Their thesis looks at the ways in which artworks from the Early Renaissance were used in a variety of literary and artistic experiments. They are particularly interested in the boundaries between people and artworks, and write on the trope of the living image in novels and travel writing. Their work aims to give voice to more performative ways of writing history; their favourites include the creative output of Michael Field and Isadora Duncan.
