Esme Garlake (she/her) is a PhD student in History of Art at University College London and an art historian specialising in ecocriticism and early sixteenth-century Italian art. She believes in the power of art history to help us understand and re-imagine past and current human relationships with the natural world, and in the responsibility of art historians to engage with issues of social and environmental justice. Esme runs an Instagram account dedicated to exploring ecocritical art history and its intersections with climate activism.
