American Art; Nineteenth-Century Art
With an interest in the intersection of art, science, and economic history, Christine’s research examines how material processes shaped the construction of national and racial identities in the United States. Currently, she is working on a dissertation project tentatively titled, “Amalgamating the West during the American Silver Age,” which considers how silver came to physically and symbolically mediated relationships between indigenous and settler populations during the rise and fall of silver mining in the mid-to-late nineteenth century. Christine holds a B.S. in mathematics from The Catholic University in America, and an M.A. in art history from Tufts University.
