WE'RE BACK!!! DID YOU MISS US?! This episode we're joined by Dr Anna Arabindan-Kesson to discuss visual art, visual culture, lenses, ways of seeing, the gaze, the critical eye, and Specsavers...in an entirely oral medium. Oooh, I get the shivers.
Anna is an Assistant Professor of African American and Black Diasporic Art at Princeton University; she is the author of Black Bodies, White Gold Art, Cotton, and Commerce in the Atlantic World (2021) and the director of Art Hx, a digital humanities project and object database that addresses the intersections of art, race and medicine in the British empire.
