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 am currently interested in animal and environmental art and ethics, and pursuing how a phenomenology of art can illuminate these issues. I seek to empower my students and all people interested in art, and amplify voices as part of art historical methodology. Please visit "Creative Resilience," a show I co-curated at UNI Gallery of Art and share YOUR story about resilience and the art presented.
