I am a current MA student at the University of Chicago in the Master of Arts Program in the Humanities. I completed by thesis in 2018, and am continuing my Japanese language education. My thesis discussed censorship and gendered supernatural bodies in early Meiji period Japanese prints, and the influence of globalization and modernization had on the perception of such images. My interests include folklore, censorship in art, print history, Japan studies, and material culture studies. I have served on a student curatorial committee at the University of Chicago, contributing two labels to a small exhibit on the prints of Felix Buhot. Currently I am interning at the Cincinnati Art Museum as a Photography Conservation and Curation Intern. My main projects are working with Meiji period ambrotypes, and cyanotypes from the William Howard Taft diplomatic mission to Asia in 1905.
