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.
