2017Ph.D. Profile Alumnus/Graduate Alumni/Casey-alumni profile.jpgAssistant Professor of Art History, Saint Mary's College of Maryland<p>​As an assistant professor of art history at the public honors college of the state of Maryland, I take part in shaping a dynamic and intimate curriculum that places art history at the heart of an undergraduate liberal arts education. While I have a strong belief in the value of the small liberal arts college, my time at the University of Delaware instilled in me a respect and value for the opportunities and support of a state-funded, public institution. After graduating from UD, it felt right to me to join an institution that comprises the best of both. At Saint Mary's, my classes explore the art and material culture of the early modern Atlantic world. While I was trained at the University of Delaware as an Americanist, this focus in my teaching grows from my experience in the program. Working with Wendy Bellion and Monica Dominguez Torres, as well as professors in the English department, and curators and faculty at Winterthur, I expanded my notion of what belonged in a study of American art, and developed an interest in the colonial world that crossed national boundaries between the US, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. As a teacher, I am excited to expand my scope even further by looking across the Atlantic to show how a study of visual and material culture can illuminate the production of an early modern global culture shaped by the interactions between people in West Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. As a graduate student, the opportunities to do internships at area museums--often with other UD alums--also sparked in me a commitment to curatorial and museum work. At Saint Mary's, I am excited to share this interest with my students by organizing field trips to mid-Atlantic museums, teaching in the Museum Studies program, and drawing from the small campus collection in my teaching.</p> Profile Alumnus/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=31
