Sarah Walsh Mallory

Sarah Mallory is a Ph.D. student of the history of art and architecture at Harvard University. She works at the intersection of environmental, global, and early modern art history, with a particular interest in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art. She is especially interested in the relationship between early modern visual and material depictions of environmental phenomena, colonialism, and the period’s emerging attitudes toward science. She is also interested in the legacy of these depictions — both as memories and scientific documents — and how such objects and artworks can or should be reconsidered in the anthropocene.

Previously, Mallory held the Isabel and Alfred Bader Fellowships for the study of Dutch art, the Ayesha Bulchandani graduate curatorial internship at The Frick Collection and worked with various museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum. She holds a B.S. in science, technology, and culture studies from the Georgia Institute of Technology, an M.A. in the history of art and archaeology from New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, and an M.A. in the history of decorative arts and design from Parsons New School for Design.
