Biography

Heather Belnap is Associate Professor of Art History and European Studies Coordinator at Brigham Young University, as well as an affiliate of the Global Women’s Studies program. Her research focuses on women in post-Revolutionary French art, fashion, and culture; religion and art in the modern era; transatlantic culture and Mormonism, c. 1900; and Mormon women’s history. She is the co-editor, along with Temma Balducci and Pamela Warner, of Interior Portraiture and Masculine Identity in France, 1789-1914 (Ashgate, 2011) and its pendant volume, Women, Femininity, and Public Space in European Visual Culture, 1789-1914 (Ashgate, 2014). Her latest book project, a critical biography of Minerva Teichert, is under contract with University of Illinois Press. Undergraduate courses that Professor Belnap frequently teaches include eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European art, modern art, contemporary art, women in art, and intro to European studies. University citizenship includes overseeing the BYU European Studies program, serving on the General Education Study Abroad (SAGE) executive committee member, and representing the College of Humanities on BYU’s Faculty Advisory Council (FAC), where she is co-chair of the benefits & compensation committee. Professor Belnap is a regional representative for The Feminist Art Project.
