My interest in the writing of history influences the shape and structure of my courses; my students learn to become aware of the cracks, the absences, the myths and the often-invisible structures of power that underlie visual culture. In my classes, questions about the piecing together of history—the seams of construction hidden beneath the surface of historical narratives that often appear to be seamless—emerge and reemerge in different forms throughout our discussion.
