Biography

Jacqueline Hylkema is Lecturer in Art History and Cultural History at Leiden University College. Her teaching focuses on the politics of early modern art and print culture and covers subjects such as the visual representation of religious, cultural and ethnic diversity in the Dutch Republic and Britain, and the role of nationalism in early modern prints. Hylkema also runs the Brill-Nijhoff Writing Centre, which facilitates academic writing and publishing at LUC, and is the Convener of the Academic Writing programme. 

Hylkema read Comparative Literature - with a large range of electives in early modern subjects at other departments - at Leiden University and did the first part of her PhD project as an Occasional Student at the Warburg Institute, where she developed a special interest in iconology in the tradition of Ernst Gombrich, which remains central to her teaching and research. Her other research interests include early modern forgery, prints and print culture, and the political dynamics of the arts and art theory in the period between 1600 and 1750.

In addition to her work at LUC, Hylkema is a Researcher at LUCAS (Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society), where she is in the final stage of finishing a PhD dissertation on early modern deception (forgery in particular) and its relationship with developments in the arts and art theory in the period between 1600 and 1750. She was the guest-curator of Leiden University Library's exhibition Books, Crooks and Readers: The Seduction of Forgery (1600-1800) (2014) and has published a number of articles on early modern print culture and early modern forgery.
