Clara Bargellini has always had an interest in methodological and historiographic problems, especially in relation to teaching work.

The professor has published essays on historiography of New Spain art and on the collection and reception of New Spain art, especially in the United States. In recent years Bargellini has undertaken and promoted comparative and multinational approaches to New Spain art.

On Wednesday, April 19, Bargellini will speak at the University of Colorado Boulder as part of the Department of Art & Art History's Visiting Scholar Program.

In 1999, Bargellini coordinated a special issue of Annals of the Institute of Aesthetic Studies, titled Art and colonial architecture in Latin America: comparative visions, and has contributed a variety of articles to several publications.

Bargellini has lived in Mexico since 1972 and is currently a professor at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
