Shana Klein
Assistant Professor, Department of Art History
Kent University

From Melons to Milk: What Representations of Food Tell Us About Race and Society​​​​​​​​​

Shana Klein is a professor at Kent State University and holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of New Mexico. She recently published the book, “The Fruits of Empire: Art, Food, and the Politics of Race in the Age of American Expansion” with the University of California Press. This book demonstrates how pictures of food were not mere decoration, but a platform for artists and viewers to discuss heated debates over race and citizenship. In 2021, it won the SECAC Award for Excellence in Scholarly Research and Publication. Klein also has been awarded several fellowships for her research at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, among others.

Watermelon Boy

Dr. Klein has presented her research in a number of peer-review journals and podcasts and she teaches classes that bring together American art, visual culture, and social justice. Brief description:Representations of food in the United States were delicious to look at and mouthwatering to paint. Although they were cheery and colorful, representations of fruit also communicated darker messages and cruel stereotypes about the people who produced and consumed food in the United States. This book talk will bring together Art History and Food Studies disciplines to reveal how pictures of foods—from watermelon to milk—struck the nerve of the nation’s most heated debates over labor, race, and citizenship.

To Honor and Respect: Recognizing Native Women in Hearts of Our People​

Thursday, November 18, 2​021
12:30 p.m.​via Zoom:

Cécile Fromont
Associate Professor, Department of the History of Art​
Yale University ​

Carlos Julião: Painting the Portuguese Empire in the Late Eighteenth Century

In this talk, Dr. Cécile Fromont considers the paintings through which Carlos Julião, an Italian-born officer of the Portuguese military, formed a portrait of the late 18th century Portuguese colonial empire. Taking a cue from the juxtaposition of topographical views, plans, and people in the images, Fromont examines Julião’s visual project through the lens of mapping as ​understood in its literal dictionary definition of a two dimensional “visual representation that shows the relative position of the parts of something.” In Julião’s visual geography, the physical and social space of Empire is measured not by kilometric distance but by political, societal, and commercial relations.​
