Lectures and Articles by Raichel Le Goff

        After graduating from the prestigious Courtauld Institute, London University, Raichel has had an inter-disciplinary career in the Humanities. With a postgraduate degree in History from Oxford, having studied under the Renaissance scholar Martin Kemp, Raichel went on to complete a PhD in Classics.
Her thesis was on the extraordinary book on art written in the 3rd century AD by Philostratus the Elder. The thesis traced the way artists from 1500 onward interpreted the ekphrasis and converted Philostratus’ text into paintings. After living in Europe since her teen years, Raichel returned to Australia and has lectured on the History and Theory of Art and Architecture for a number of years. Raichel is currently Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at the School of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Newcastle, NSW Australia.
