Emily Kang


Emily Kang (2022) studies early American visual culture, with a particular focus on the built environment and thematic interests in critical race theory, class, and nation-building. Her research focuses especially on 18th century art in the Americas and Britain, but she is also deeply invested in the politics of exchange within the circum-Atlantic sphere and beyond as she considers the dynamics of imperial and colonial visual culture. Emily received B.A.s in Art History and English Literature from the University of Chicago in 2021 before teaching English in Lyon, France through the Teaching Assistant Program in France for the 2021-2022 school year.
