I teach art history and American studies to undergrad non-majors at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY, where I am helping to launch an Interdisciplinary Studies department and major. Courses I teach include American Art, Art of Social Change, Commemorative Practices, Public Art, and Art in NYC. I co-edit the journal Public Art Dialogue with Cameron Cartiere (Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver). Sierra Rooney (University of Wisconsin-La Crosse) and I are co-editing a volume with Harriet Senie (CUNY City College & Graduate Center), Teachable Monuments: Using Public Art to Spark Dialogue and Confront Controversies (Bloomsbury). I have published on the domestic display of FDR portraits in photographs by Gordon Parks and Jack Delano (Winterthur Portfolio) and on World War I memorial sculpture in the United States in a book, Sculpting Doughboys (published 2013 by Ashgate and available as an e-book from Routledge) and in the journals American Art, Woman’s Art Journal, and Public Art Dialogue. My research and teaching interests include public art, art of social change, and the display of presidential portraits.
