Current Fellows: History Department, PhD

I am interested in the connections that can be made when history relocates itself within the realm of art, and conversely, when art takes on history as its medium. My current project is focussed on the “hand” as it appears variously in the production, performance and reception of puppetry; taking the archive of the Handspring Puppet Company as its starting point or medium. My broader research interests include performativity, play, and the relation between objects and subjects.
