Art Historian

  These pages make available some of my professional activities and accomplishments. My research specialization is in the visual  culture produced in the sixteenth and seventeenth century Low Countries, and how print and visual culture helped shape European  ideas and rhetoric about empire and power that continue to resonate today. I have recently published on animal and environmental  art and ethics, and how a phenomenology of art can illuminate these issues. All my work has been feminist and post-colonial in its theoretical framing. I seek to empower my students and all people  interested in art, and amplify voices as part of art historical methodology. My current research engages feminism directly through studies of place and female agency.
