RESEARCH
 

I study art in relation to the contexts for which it has meaning and significance.

I emphasize historical and theoretical connections between primary source texts, features of works of art and cultural artifacts, and discourses of art history, late capitalism and post-industrialism, technology, modernities and their legacies, and iterations of nations in post-colonial, international and global contexts.

At present, my projects focus on art and questions of belonging involving political economy, uses of history, and collecting practices.

My current book project, Politics of Vietnamese handicraft: diplomacy and domestication in belonging to the American Free World, 1955-1961, inquires how a major American State Department aid program politicized Vietnamese handicraft in light of American Cold War anxieties and domesticated its makers and objects to appeal to American business and the middle class.
