A note about JJ Bauer: I am the Visual Resources Curator and an Art Historian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I received my training at Southern Methodist University, University College-London, Penn State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My interests include: almost all culture from 1895-1919 in America and Europe, but especially design, architecture, and film; gender; theater; and digital humanities. I co-curated with Timothy Riggs the Ackland Art Museum exhibition Apocalypse Then: Images of Destruction, Prophecy and Judgment from Dürer to the Twentieth Century (2000). An addendum chapter to a new edition of John V. Allcott’s The Campus at Chapel Hill: 225 of Architecture (2019) is now available (read more here: I continue to work on the Artists’ Studio Archives Project ( More information about me can be found on my UNC-Chapel Hill Faculty paqe.

I conduct “The Campus at Chapel Hill” Architecture Tours through Heart of the Hill Tours. See their website for more information and to register for a tour!

I will be adding course pages and more in the future. Semi-regular blog posts can be found at Digital Art History Thursdays.

I have started a draft Timeline of events in Rudolph Valentino’s life and career. This is a work in progress and an experiment in using TimelineJS.
