I'm an art historian and I teach in a generalist capacity at St. Francis College in downtown Brooklyn. I also teach American Studies courses like "Commemorative Practices" and "Art of Social Change." My area of focus is art and visual culture of the US. I'm interested in the history and politics of museums, archives, and public art. I'm currently researching the display of public pictures in private places (like portraits of FDR in the 30s and 40s, for example). I've published a book and articles on World War I memorial sculpture in the US. I like bringing my students outside the classroom.
