Harriet F. Senie
Professor, Art History and Director of Art Museum Studies
Her chief research areas are public art, memorials, memory and material culture, the American landscape tradition (themes of the road in American art and culture), and contemporary pilgrimage practice. In 2008, she co-founded with Professor Cher Krause Knight (Emerson University), Public Art Dialogue, an international organization that is also a CAA affiliate. The journal, Public Art Dialogue, that she co-edits with Prof. Knight, appears twice annually and is the only peer review journal devoted to public art.
