Professor, Columbia University

British-born academic Simon Schama is professor of Art History and History at Columbia University in New York. He taught history at Cambridge (Christ's College), Oxford (Brasenose College) and art history and history at Harvard before coming to Columbia. His many books have won the Wolfson Award for History, the W.H.
