OVERVIEW
 

At the University of North Texas located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, I teach courses in the history, theory and methodology of art and art history after 1900. My teaching and scholarship examine contemporary art in relation to its historical and theoretical cultural and social contexts.  

Upon arriving in 1998 I became the “20th-2st c person” in UNT’s College of Visual Arts and Design, one of the nation’s largest public art schools. As the first art historian UNT hired in many years, I created new courses, for example, methodologies for art history undergraduates as well as postmodernism, along with degree procedures and academic events, such as the MA Art History Colloquium. Uniquely in my program, during my probationary pre-tenure years and then subsequently, until 2008, without receiving course releases I taught a 3-3 load including large enrollment courses (100+), chaired the majority of MA art history student research projects (50 at this point), carried a heavy service load and mentored my colleagues through tenure. Throughout, my workload has consisted of 40-60% teaching, 40-60% service, 20-25% research.

My teaching record consists of leadership in innovating faculty collaborations, interdisciplinarity, mentoring faculty and students, supervising MA research projects, and facilitating graduate and undergraduate student-related research grants along with professional international and national presentations and publications. In addition to being a sought after seminar teacher, I originated collaboratively taught courses, including for study abroad. Also, I established and continue to maintain longstanding course-related student research projects that integrate emerging, recent and historical art history and humanities scholarship with inquiry-based student learning. For example, Collections, Cultures and Collaborations, going on its seventh year, originated as a grant-funded program that pairs incoming MA art history students enrolled in a required methodologies course with diverse area collections. Students research and write original essay-length gallery labels and give gallery talks. As another example, the grant-funded Women Art Technology trains undergraduate and graduate students to use oral history and autoethnographic methodologies to produce a digital archive of interviews with women who use technology in any capacity in the contemporary art world. It redresses a lack of scholarly attention to women’s activities with technology at a time when the art world has increased its reliance on what it considers as digital computing, forms and practices that its members use to make, exhibit, study, teach and preserve the visual arts, including technology-based art.

I have made significant service contributions to my university, college and department. For example, I served as co-chair of the university's Graduate Council and I chaired first my entire college's and then my department’s Retention Promotion and Tenure Committee, the latter, for 8 consecutive years. Some ongoing service links research and teaching.  I am a founding and continuing member of a research cluster called IARTA, Initiative for Advanced Research in Technology and the Arts, a collaborative, cross-disciplinary team composed of leading researchers, faculty, and students engaged in art and technology research. Also, I facilitated the scholarship of professionals in one of my research areas by working as editor for the Historians of British Art Newsletter for 8 consecutive years. Other service supports work/life balance. Last year, the Provost's office awarded me funding to launch and run a university-wide network supporting women faculty.

What is more, I remain highly productive in research that demonstrates a strong commitment to fostering historiographic and methodological innovation in the history of art since 1900, with emphasis on the period since 1945. My scholarship takes a contextual approach to understanding works of art and visual and material culture together with critical approaches to studying their developments in contemporary and historical art worlds. Often my scholarship treats methodology and theory as creative historical as well as interpretive components of a project.

My current research agenda encompasses 3 active publishing strands that build upon but mainly move substantially beyond my dissertation reconstituting the discursive significance of commodity culture for mid twentieth century vanguard art and art writing. They are (1) American art and visual and material culture in social and international contexts (with my current book and article project examining the politics of crafts in US-Vietnam relations 1954-1961); (2) British and Irish art since 1949, with specific topics including ethnicity in the art of Tracey Emin, and cultural heritage, memory and internationalism and transnationalism in Irish ar); and (3) art and technology, for example, the American reception of Walter Benjamin's essay, "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” cybernetics and art, and Women Art Technology. I have also conferenced and published on pedagogy concerning graduate art history.

I fund my research by obtaining external and internal grants, fellowships and residencies, Past support has come the Yale Center for British Art, Fulbright, the UCD Clinton Institute for American Studies, Institute for International Visual Arts, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Center for Craft Creativity and Design, Design History Society and Newberry Library. I deliver my research in refereed journals and at international and national conferences and symposia, and through the many visiting scholar, symposia and roundtable programs that I organize.

"Tracey Emin’s Photographs and Films of Turkey and Cyprus," in Photography and Cyprus: Time, Place and Identity (International Library of Modern and Contemporary Art)  Edited by Liz Wells, Theopisti Stylianou, and Nicos Philippou (l. I.B. Tauris 2013)

I.B. Taurus publishes fine critical writing and cutting-edge scholarship on the subjects, objects, media and environments of Visual Culture.

Formerly a British colony, the island of Cyprus is now a divided country, where histories of political and cultural conflicts, as well as competing identities, remain contested. Cyprus provides the ideal case study for this innovative exploration, extensively illustrated, of how the practice of photography in relation to its political, cultural and economic contexts both contributes and responds to the formation of identity. International contributors, representing diverse disciplines, draw from photography theory, art history, anthropology and sociology to explore how the island and its people have been represented photographically. They reveal how the different gazes - colonial, political, gendered and within art photography - contribute to the creation of individual and national identities and, by extension, to the creation and re-creation of imagery of Cyprus as place.

The questions this book asks and the themes and arguments it follows apply also to other places characterized by their colonial heritage. The intriguing example of Cyprus thus serves as a fitting test-ground for current debates relating to photography, place and identity.

Anglistica is published mainly in English both to reach a wider, international readership and to encourage external contributions. Anglistica is a bi-annual peer-reviewed journal of international interdisciplinary studies. It explores the politics and poetics of intercultural communication and representation in the complex ‘glocal’ formations of the contemporary world. Providing a space for intellectual dialogue within and beyond the field of English studies, literatures and linguistics, it engages with postcolonial, North American, cultural and gender studies, as well as issues of race, migrancy and diaspora.
