History of Art and Architecture
Lawrence Hall 237D
Kate Mondloch completed her undergraduate work in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and earned both her M.A. and Ph.D. in art history from UCLA. She joined the University of Oregon’s Department of the History of Art and Architecture in 2005. Professor Mondloch teaches courses in contemporary art and theory and directs the university’s New Media and Culture graduate certificate program. Her research interests focus on late 20th- and early 21st-century art, theory, and criticism, particularly as these areas of inquiry intersect with the cultural, social, and aesthetic possibilities of new technologies. Her research fields are wide-ranging and include screen-based media art and theory, postwar sculpture, contemporary craft, feminism, digital culture, science and technology studies, and the digital humanities. She is interested especially in theories of spectatorship and subjectivity, and in research methods that bridge the sciences and the humanities. Professor Mondloch is the author of Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2010) and has been published in a variety of journals, including Art Journal, Feminist Media Studies, Leonardo, and Vectors. She has been awarded research fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), the University of California Humanities Research Institute, and the Oregon Humanities Center. Prof. Mondloch received the University of Oregon's Faculty Excellence Award in 2013. She currently serves on the editorial board of Art Journal.
