Kimberly Rhodes (Ph.D. Columbia University), Associate Professor of Art History, writes and teaches about modern and contemporary visual culture and has worked as an art historian in both museum and academic settings. Professor Rhodes is the Director of the New York Semester on Contemporary Art and regularly teaches courses on nineteenth-century art, early twentieth-century art, and American art. Most recently, she is the author of Ophelia and Victorian Visual Culture: Representing Body Politics in the Nineteenth Century (Ashgate, 2008) and “Double Take: Tom Hunter’s The Way Home (2000)” for the collection The Afterlife of Ophelia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), which exemplify her transhistorical, multidisciplinary approach to the study of art history. Her current research projects continue the exploration of relationships among Shakespeare’s plays and nineteenth-century visual culture, primarily in the arena of landscape art.
