On Friday, April 20, doctoral candidate Kiersten Mounce participated in the eighth annual Graduate Students’ Forum for Research and Creative Works. Mounce had a poster on display that discussed the topic of her dissertation. Mounce explains, “My dissertation, ‘The Revolutionary Life of the Chaise sandows, 1928-1937,’ investigates the complex relationships between industry, design, physical culture, and national politics in interwar France by studying the life history of a serially-produced chair, the Chaise sandows. My poster reflected this material-culture approach by presenting a large image of the Chaise sandows with a cluster of key images from each of these four chapters. I spoke with an interdisciplinary crowd at the forum about issues that my project addresses that carry contemporary relevance: body politics, the social role of sports and exercise, ecological violence of mass production, and the ability of seemingly inconsequential objects to carry a symbolic charge.”
