Gregory Minissale is an art historian whose doctoral research at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, focused on the phenomenology of transcultural encounters in art. This background has informed his ongoing research into how perception and other forms of consciousness are engaged in the production and reception of art. He has taught art history to undergraduates and postgraduates in the UK and the US, and aims to integrate aspects of neurophenomenology, art theory and philosophy in order to provide new ways of researching and interpreting art and visual experience.
