Emilie A. Luse
Advisor: European Modernism
My dissertation “Criticize and Punish: Disciplining Modernism in Interwar France” explores the ways in which conservative art critics and art historians in 1920s and 1930s France sought to write modernism out of history while circumscribing its future. Bringing these reactionary histories to light, my dissertation reveals the aims of an aesthetic and political order radically opposed to the modernist trajectory with which we are familiar. In so doing, I provide a case study for the way in which cultural authorities seek to regulate the realm of the sensible that we call artistic production. A video in which I present a very brief overview of my dissertation research is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvf6XARznww Area: History of Third Republic France
