Kate Mondloch

Practice Areas: Media Art and Theory, Installation Art, Feminism, New Media, Science and Technology Studies, Digital Humanities

Kate Mondloch is an academic expert in new media, science and technology studies, digital humanities, media art and theory, installation art and feminism. At the University of Oregon, she is a professor and head of the Department of the History of Art and Architecture and interim dean and vice provost of the Graduate School. Kate’s work focuses on late 20th- and early 21st- century art, theory, and criticism, particularly as these areas of inquiry intersect with the cultural, social, and aesthetic possibilities of new technologies. 

She is especially interested in theories of spectatorship and subjectivity (the study of how we see and experience the world, not just what we see), and in research methods that bridge the sciences and the humanities.

Kate has authored the books Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2010) and A Capsule Aesthetic: Feminist Materialisms in New Media Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2017). She is currently researching a book exploring attention, perception, and contemplation in art post-1950.

She has published work in Art Journal, Art Bulletin, Feminist Media Studies, Leonardo, and Vectors.
