Aidan Flynn

Aidan Flynn holds a B.A. (Hons.) with High Distinction from the University of Toronto, where he double majored in Art History and Renaissance Studies. He recently completed his Master of Science in Architecture Studies (S.M.Arch.S.) in the History, Theory + Criticism of Architecture and Art program at MIT. Aidan's thesis, "Surveilling Sin: Locating Sodomy in the Early Modern Florentine Bathhouse," explored concepts of deviant sex in sociopolitical, legal, topographical, and visual terms in Renaissance Florence, Italy.
