My academic research centers on issues of craft, gender, materiality, and globalization. Below you will find my cv with an abstract for my dissertation, "Anthropologies of Fiber: Claire Zeisler, Ed Rossbach, Sheila Hicks," in addition to published articles, essays, catalogue entries, and reviews. I welcome your feedback and hope this scholarship will help you to critically engage our visual and material world.
