Amy Buono is the Latin American studies guest for this lecture on Thursday, 9 April at 11:00 a.m. in the HBLL auditorium.
Buono teaches in the Department of Art History and Theory in the Art Institute of the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, specializing in transatlantic visual culture.
Her publications encompass topics as diverse as the ritual performance of featherwork, the epistemology of medicinal recipe books, the art of natural history, and theories of collecting.
Three threads connect her broader research agenda: an interest in the institutional histories of art; an understanding of the technologies of production as crucial to art’s social efficacy; and a commitment to tracing the rhetorical deployment of art objects.
Co-sponsored by Latin American Studies and the Department of Comparative Arts and Letters.
