 Angela Clarke, Ph.D


Dr. Angela Clarke has been the Museum Director and Curator at the Italian Cultural Centre Museum in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since 2012. She holds a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of British Columbia, where she specialized in women, religion and decorative art of the Italian Renaissance as well as museology. Her primary research focus has been the material culture of Renaissance Italy, specifically taking a social-historical approach to Deruta maiolica bella donna plates as they pertain to the lives of middle-class Umbrian women in the domestic space.


Since the completion of her dissertation, she has expanded her research to include other domestic decorative arts such as textiles, mirrors, devotional items, costume, jewellery and liturgical textile.
