Yale Welcomes Dr. Morgan Ng

October 31, 2021


Dr. Morgan Ng is a historian of early modern architecture, landscape, and visual culture specializing in Renaissance Italy and its global networks. His scholarship explores the interplay between art and technology; the multisensory perception of the built environment; ecological approaches to architecture; theories of form; problems of historical periodization; and the relationship of the graphic arts to building design and practice. His forthcoming book, The Stratified City: Military Architecture in Renaissance Italy, probes the close morphological links between fortifications and other works of sixteenth-century art and design: palaces, gardens, and urban infrastructure.

Before coming to Yale, Ng was a Junior Research Fellow at St John’s College, University of Cambridge, and a postdoctoral scholar at the Getty Research Institute. He has also worked as an architect in New York and Chicago. He currently teaches “Italian Renaissance Art” and “Critical Approaches to Art History.”
