About C. Cody Barteet

Currently, I have two research programs.
The first addresses my research in Early Modern Art and Architecture in Hispanic America and Europe, with emphases on the relationships among architecture, urban forms (and environments), maps, and textual data. I am particularly interested in the exchange of cultural forms between pre-contact Indigenous peoples and the colonizing Europeans, as disparate peoples (i.e. European, Indigenous, or African) negotiated the colonial encounters brought about by the uncertainties that arose through these cultural engagements. My teaching reflects these research interests as my courses analyze the visual cultures of pre-Columbian Americas and Viceregal Hispanic America alongside those of Renaissance and Baroque Europe.
The second program has begun to investigate the local artistic and architectural heritage of the Anglican churches of the Diocese of Huron (London, Ontario). The project documents and records the significant artistic production that occurred in stained glass throughout Southern Ontario from the late 19th-century until today. Likewise, this research program consists of exhibitions and establishes a visual database documenting the diverse artistic works created in Southern Ontario.
