Nicholas Mirzoeff

September - December 2002

Nicholas Mirzoeff is professor of art and comparative literature at SUNY, Stony Brook, and author of An Introduction to Visual Culture (Routledge, 1999), Silent Poetry: Deafness, Sign and Visual Culture in Modern France (Princeton University Press, 1995), and Bodyscape: Art, Modernity and the Ideal Figure (Routledge, 1995). His current project, Ghetto Moderns: Clairvoyant Visuality and the Cultural Practice of Emancipation, examines the visual culture of emancipation from the joint perspectives of the liberator and the marginal group, arguing that transcultural modes of modernity consistently return to the center.
