Rosenthal specializes in early modern European visual culture (particularly British art within a global perspective), with an emphasis on cultural history, gender studies, feminist and postcolonial theory, and the history of art criticism. She teaches courses on European art of the 18th and 19th centuries, and the theories and methods of art history.
