Susana S. Martins is currently an FCT-Portugal Research Fellow both at the Institute for Art History, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, and at the Institute for Cultural Studies, Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. Initially trained as an art historian in Lisbon, she was awarded a PhD in photography and cultural studies from the arts faculty of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, with the work “Portugal as Seen through Foreign Eyes: Photography and Visual Culture in the 1950s”. Martins studies the history and theory of photography, with a particular focus on travel books, museums & exhibitions, and national identities. She is interested in the different roles photography has played in international and universal exhibitions since the 19th century and also studies contemporary art, film, and politics. Since 2008 she has also taught courses in the fields of photography, visual arts, communication semiotics, visual culture, impressionism and modernity.
