Kaylee Alexander

Student

Overview

Kaylee P. Alexander is a 3rd year Ph.D. student in Art History specializing in nineteenth-century French visual culture. Under the supervision of Professor Neil McWilliam, Kaylee is currently conducting research for her dissertation, tentatively titled “Necro/polis: In Between Paris, 1786–1870." In the dissertation she will discuss the complex space of the cemetery in nineteenth-century Paris. In examining the changing shape of the city's intra-muros cemeteries over time, she will demonstrate the ways in which the cemetery became integral to the de/construction of modern Paris as an urban and social body over the course of the nineteenth century.

Kaylee received a B.A. in Art History cum laude from New York University in 2013, and an M.A. in the History of Art and Architecture from the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU in 2015.
