Professor Jelena Todorovic

Art History

University of the Arts in Belgrade

Professor Jelena Todorovic received her BA in the History of Art (1993-1998) at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Belgrade, Serbia. She continued her studies for both her MA and her PhD at University College London, UK, between 1998 and 2004, where she also worked as a teaching assistant and, later, as a part-time lecturer. In 2005 she transferred to the University of the Arts in Belgrade, where she presently teaches as a Full Professor and, since 2014, has held the position of Vice Dean for International Cooperation.

Jelena remained a visiting lecturer at UCL between 2003 and 2006, and has held visiting professorships at the University of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, Serbia, and the Universita degli Studi di Trieste, Italy. Since 2006, she has been a Keeper of the State Art Collection in Belgrade.

Although an art historian by training, her interests have always been more directed towards early modern cultural history, including the broad areas of festival culture, the art and propaganda, concepts of time and transience, and the understanding of liminal spaces in the visual arts.
