Dylan J. Montanari
I work with Executive Editor Susan M. Bielstein on the Press’s art and ancient studies lists.
My interests in art include books on underacknowledged figures and traditions, neglected forms and materials, and surprising connections between the arts and other bodies of knowledge.
Among other things, I am interested in projects that shed new light on what it means for art to be political, projects that examine the institutional and non-institutional contexts in which art is made and viewed, and projects that reveal how the creation and appreciation of art have been and continue to be transformed by a global art market.
I also welcome projects that engage with creative work in the domains of advertising, media, and design, and the influence of these fields on the art world.
My interests in ancient studies include accessibly written books on ancient history and on the contemporary relevance of ancient art, culture, and myth. I especially welcome projects that emphasize the interrelated histories of different ancient civilizations, as well as projects that challenge our preconceived notions about life in the ancient world.
I joined the Press as an editorial associate in 2016 after studying at the University of Chicago and Stanford University.
