Erica Moiah James is an art historian, curator, and assistant professor at the University of Miami. Her research centers on Indigenous, modern, and contemporary art of the Caribbean, Americas, and the African Diaspora. At the Clark, James plans to develop several chapters of her next book, which focuses on eighteenth and nineteenth-century global Caribbean art in conversation with contemporary practices and art historical methodologies. As an extension of the book project, she will also develop an exhibition of some of the earliest known paintings and prints of the Caribbean made by British military artists.
