I'm an Art History and Museum Studies professor at NYU, and my research focuses on visual culture, exhibitions, and propaganda, museums as creators of art historical canons, contemporary art and historical sites and the politics of memory.
I'm very active on twitter: tweeting about art, economic justice, progressive politics, pop culture, race, fashion, and social media.I know several members of the group, and I found out about it from one of them. I tweet under an alias -@petitemaoiste, also the name of my blog -but because I'm not comfortable having all of my students looking at what I'm doing on-line, I selectively tell people in the arts/media/museum/academic worlds who I am when we tweet/meet in person. :-)
I'd like to learn more about the intersections of art, activism, museums, and social media and develop potential collaborations with people interested in these areas.
