Cultural Studies Adjunct: Paula Ben-Amos Girshick

After working for a number of years in the Benin Kingdom , Nigeria on the history and political role of royal art, I have recently begun research in South Africa . I am currently involved in two projects: the first deals with post-apartheid monuments and national identity and the second focuses on the history of the South African market in "traditional" African art.

I regularly teach courses on "Art and Commodity," "Exhibiting Cultures: Museums, Exhibitions and Worlds' Fairs," "Theories of Material Culture," "The Anthropology of Tourism," and "The Arts and Anthropology", occasionally taught as "Public Art: Monuments and Memorials".
