Minou Schraven teaches art history and museum studies at Amsterdam University College. She is a specialist in early modern Italian art and material culture with a focus on Rome. Minou has previously held postdocs at the University of Liege, and at Leiden University. At Leiden, she developed a project on foundation rituals and building deposits: objects that were deposited within in the foundations of new buildings to implore both longevity for the structure and well-being for its inhabitants. Her book Festive Funerals in Early Modern Italy is currently in press with Ashgate.
