Jacqueline Atkin is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Art History working under the supervision of Dr. Mary Hunter. Her research interests include artistic and medical collaboration, later 19th-century medical photography, and avant-garde portraiture. Her doctoral research project examines how medical imagery produced within the field of neurology informed modernist art-making practices. More specifically, Jacqueline explores how neurological ideas about the human brain and its functions travelled across media, disciplines, and countries through images of patients and their brains. Jacqueline's research is funded by the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarship.
