- A comprehensive critique of theories of style and collectivities in art history, resulting in a reevaluation of Syro-Anatolian artworks and related historical narratives (ca. twelfth to seventh centuries BC). I develop an alternative understanding of “style-analysis” and propose a new model to account for past subjectivities.
