I am Professor of Contemporary Art and Head of the Department of the History of Art and Architecture in the College of Design at the University of Oregon. I also am the founding director of the University’s graduate certificate program in New Media and Culture and a former editorial board member of Art Journal. My research interests focus on late 20th- and early 21st- century art, theory, and criticism, particularly as these areas of inquiry intersect with the cultural, social, and aesthetic possibilities of new technologies. My research fields include media art and theory, installation art, contemporary craft, feminism, digital culture, science and technology studies, and the digital humanities. I am interested especially in theories of spectatorship and subjectivity, and in research methods that bridge the sciences and the humanities. My first book is Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2010). My second book, A Capsule Aesthetic: Feminist Materialisms in New Media Art, is in press and forthcoming with the University of Minnesota Press in 2017. I have published in a variety of journals, including Art Journal, Feminist Media Studies, Leonardo, and Vectors, and contributed essays to anthologies such as Exhibiting the Moving Image (JRP/Ringier), Screen/Space (Manchester University Press), and The Johns Hopkins Guide to Digital Media. I have been awarded research fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), University of California Humanities Research Institute, Banff Centre, and Oregon Humanities Center. My research also has been supported by the Getty Research Institute and the Clark Art Institute. I received the University of Oregon’s Faculty Excellence Award in 2013.
