Key themes in Antony’s work centre on the use of art to manufacture, display and manipulate identities on a public stage, especially on the frontera between religions and cultures.
Antony has taught at The Courtauld since 1995, after nine years in the art history department at the University of Warwick where he was Head of Department in his last two years.
His research is divided between topics in Late Antique and Byzantine art and topics relating to the Caucasus (Georgia and Armenia), and relations between the Christian and Islamic cultures there.
He has just completed Tamta's World, a study of women and identity in eastern Anatolia and the Caucasus on teh eve of the Mongol invasions in the thirteenth century - a region known as the land where three worlds meet. He is now preparing a history of art in Georgia.
