Professor Bokody completed a dissertation on the phenomenon of images-within-images in Italian painting (1278-1348). He is interested in the ways by which images can enchant their viewers (both in their 'original' historical context and in the reductive space of the museum). He also deals with the interaction of ethics and aesthetics.

He has conducted research on the history of fantasy literature and its relation to role-playing games. Peter was a visiting researcher at the Index of Christian Art in Princeton and at the Kunsthistorische Institut in Florence. He has been teaching at McDaniel College Budapest since 2007.
