I am Professor of Contemporary Art and Head of the Department of the History of Art and Architecture at the University of Oregon. I am also 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 especially interested 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 is A Capsule Aesthetic: Feminist Materialisms in New Media Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2017), for which I developed a related multimedia publication, Installation Archive: A Capsule Aesthetic, using the Scalar platform. My current research explores attention, perception, and contemplation in contemporary art, with an eye toward theorizing a “post-anthropocentric” spectatorship. 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 has also been supported by the Getty Research Institute and the Clark Art Institute. I received the University of Oregon’s Faculty Excellence Award in 2013.
