Mia Bagneris: Redefining the Early African Diaspora

Assistant Professor Mia L. Bagneris, the Jesse Poesch Junior Professor of Art History in the Newcomb Art Department and her collaborator Anna Arabindan-Kesson of Princeton University's Department of Art and Archaeology have won an ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowship for their project Beyond Recovery: Reframing the Dialogues of Early African Diaspora Art History, c. 1700-1900. The book aims to redefine early African diaspora art history by revealing and reconsidering the varying entanglements of artists of African descent—and the art histories they have often been written out of—and to offer a model for breaking new ground in the field.
