Dr Ulrike Weiss joined the Museum & Gallery Studies team in 2009, having previously worked in museums in Germany and Britain. Her research focuses on the ?long eighteenth century?. Her PhD, on South German Rococo sculpture and interior decoration, was published in 1998. Her current work concentrates on Hanoverian political iconography, court culture and numismatics. A recent publication analyses the imagery of the medals celebrating the coronation in 1714 and looks at how they were marketed; and an article on 18th-century riding etiquette for ladies is in preparation. Ulrike acted as deputy chair on the academic advisory board for the current exhibition on the Hanoverian succession to the British throne, held across 5 venues in Hanover.

Dr Weiss has recently created a version of "Sidesaddle: 1690-1935" that is accesible to all.
