Short biography
Richard Neer is William B. Ogden Distinguished Service Professor of Art History, Cinema & Media Studies and the College, and the Executive Editor of Critical Inquiry. He works at the intersection of aesthetics, archaeology and history, with particular emphasis on the role of phenomenology and theories of style in multiple fields: Classical Greek sculpture, neo-Classical French painting, and mid-20th century cinema. His Ph.D. is from the University of California at Berkeley (1998), his A.B. from Harvard College (1991). He has received fellowships and awards from the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, the J. Paul Getty Trust and the American Academy in Rome. His most recent books are The Emergence of the Classical Style in Greek Sculpture (University of Chicago Press, 2010) and Art and Archaeology of the Greek World: A New History, 2500–100 BCE (Thames & Hudson, 2012). Current research topics include: ancient concepts of wonder and grace, the theory and history of connoisseurship, the sculpture of Charles Ray, and questions of evidence, criteria and judgment in some films by Malick, Mizoguchi and others.
