Research Interests

Mr. Santelli's major focus is on the multitude of reactions in late 19th and early 20th century Britain to modernism and the modern world. This ranges from the art of John Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement to the neo-feudalism of Hilaire Belloc and G. K. Chesterton. He hopes to integrate in to my research such phenomena as the political fragmentation of the time and the rise of the museum and other historical preservation efforts.

He received his bachelor’s degree in classical studies from the College of William & Mary and my master’s degree in History from George Mason University.
