She is the author of Art and Empire: The Politics of Ethnicity in the United States Capitol, 1815–1865, and Art and the Crisis of Marriage: Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keeffe, and is currently writing Henry Ries’s Photographs of Berlin Iconic Buildings and Monuments, 1937–2004.

She was the 2022 recipient of SAAM’s Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art for her book, Against Our Will: Sexual Trauma in American Art Since 1970, which provides analysis on American artists who challenge the taboos surrounding sexual violence to construct an anti-rape, anti-incest counternarrative.
Content warning: SAAM seeks to provide a safe space for all attendees; this lecture will amplify the voices of survivors of sexual violence
