Tania Woloshyn is a post-doctoral fellow in the department of Art History & Communication Studies at McGill, under the supervision of Professor Mary Hunter. The two-year fellowship is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Tania comes to McGill after working at the University of Nottingham and Richmond, the American International University in London (UK) for two years as an adjunct assistant professor. From 2004-2008 she undertook her PhD in Art History at the University of Nottingham, under the supervision of Professor Anthea Callen. Her dissertation, "Vers la lumière: Painters and Patients on the Côte d’Azur, c.1887-1910," explored intersections in the histories of art, medicine and tourism on France's Mediterranean coast, particularly through the work of the Neo-Impressionists. Her current post-doctoral research focuses on shared interests amongst artists, physicists and doctors in sunlight, c.1880-1940. She is curating a small book exhibition, "Our Friend, the Sun: Images of Light Therapeutics in the Osler Collection," at the Osler Library for the History of Medicine from January-June 2011 in conjunction with her post-doctoral research.
