Our theme for this episode is “Seeing Cities”. We hear about two very different ways of looking at a city, making connections across space and time, and allowing us to understand the urban environment and its history in new and unexpected ways. We visited Queen Mary University to talk to two art historians whose work is bound up with these issues. We hear from Hannah Williams, on how digital mapping has allowed her to unearth surprising patterns in the art world of eighteenth century Paris (, and from Emilie Oléron Evans, on the unique perspective that the art and architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner brought to the buildings of England.
