Alexandria Brown-Hedjazi

Alexandria studies early modern art and architecture, with a particular focus on Renaissance Italy and Safavid Iran. Themes of architectural representation, urban planning and landscape, as well as relations between diplomacy, gifting, and reception are central to her research. 

Her dissertation examines diplomatic exchange between Italy and Iran in the first half of the seventeenth century, through the dual lenses of court reports and material history. The research is a comparative study of urban design, palatial architecture, and diplomatic ceremony in Isfahan, Venice, and Rome around the year 1600.
