Lindsay Smith studied English and Fine Art at the University of Wales (Aberystwyth) and completed a PhD entitled 'The Enigma of Visibility in Ruskin, Morris and the Pre-Raphaelites under the supervision of Professor Isobel Armstong at the University of Southampton. Before her appointmant at Sussex she taught at the Univerity of Southampton and at Rutgers University, New Jersey. From the first an inter-disciplinary scholar with a keen interest in practice (especially painting and photography) she continues to produce work that enages those difficult and hesitant spaces between established disciplines.
Victorian literature, (especially poetry); 19th century non-fictional prose; painting and photography; visual perception the 19th century; photography theory.
I have supervised a large number of D.Phil theses to successful completion and many of my students have gone on to successful academic careers. I welcome enquiries and applications from potential research students in all aspects of 19th century literature, photography and the visual arts and especially those that cut across established disciplines.
