Hans J. Van Miegroet was trained at the Higher Institute for Art History and Archaeology of the University of Ghent (Belgium) and received his Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was trained at the Higher Institute for Art History and Archaeology of the University of Ghent (Belgium) and received his Ph.D. at the University of California. He is engaged in exploring Visual Studies at the interface of the humanities, social sciences, law and the sciences. He has adopted a scientific collaborative model to conducting research on emerging Art Markets, legal questions related to copyright and cultural heritage and visual culture as a commercial pursuit. This approach has made it possible to create, and sustain, a variety of new research strategies and modes of interpretation, attractive to scholars and students from the humanities, law, the natural sciences and the social sciences.
