Title : Terra Foundation for American Art Research and Teaching Fellow at the Fondation de L’Université Paris Nanterre / Associate Researcher in American Art and Transatlantic Exchanges, LARCA, Université Paris Diderot and HAR, Université Paris Nanterre


Research Themes :

  • 20th century American art and visual culture
  • cartography and spatial imagination
  • war and violence in art
  • exile, migration, and population ethics

Current Projects :

Currently, I am working on a book project entitled Shattered Ground : American Art and Spatial Imagination in the 1940s. It focuses on the shift in the perception and representation of space that occurred in American art during World War II. The experience of war, its technologies and visual vocabulary, dramatically transformed the concept of worldspace in the cultural discourse, leading to the probing and reworking of various conventions of spatial representation. In the book, I discuss the ways, in which this transformation affected art and visual culture in the United States in the early 1940s, as well as its lasting influence on American popular imagination in the second half of the twentieth century and to the present day.
