Dr João Florêncio

Research supervision

João is open to discuss compelling research proposals on any topics broadly related to his research interests and expertise. He is especially happy to consider working with candidates whose concerns intersect modern and contemporary art, visual culture and performance with interests in sex/sexuality, subjectivities, and the wide field of the posthumanities.
