Joanna Ciemińska is an Early Stage Researcher and Maria Skłodowska-Curie fellow in the European Training Network PALAMUSTO, funded by the EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020. For her doctoral dissertation she is researching the practices of collecting and displaying of East Asian objects in early modern European court residences. She studied art history at the University of Warsaw and French philology at the University of Warsaw, Université Paris-Sorbonne (Paris-IV) and Université Paris-Diderot (Paris-VII). She received a MA degree in both disciplines upon presenting theses dedicated to a narratological analysis of Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s illustrations to Les Contes of Jean de La Fontaine and to sensory experience in Senancour’s 1804 novel Oberman. Throughout the years her interests have mainly been focused on eighteenth-century French art, thought and fiction, but also history of early modern consumption, collecting, interiors, decorative arts and court residences; court studies; reception of Asian art in early modern Europe; heritage interpretation and curating heritage institutions; figures of difference in literature and art; contemporary methodologies in the humanities; early modern iconography and printing; 18th-century book illustration and sensory studies in historical research.
