Dr. Siddons is an Associate Professor in Art History whose research interests focus on the history of printmaking and photography, particularly in relation to representations of race, racialization, gender and sexuality. Her Fulbright award will fund her travel to the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library in London, United Kingdom. This will support the completion of her book manuscript which will examine American photographer Laura Gilpin’s 1968 book, “The Enduring Navaho.” Siddons will examine her position within the intersectional politics of twentieth-century photography, Indigeneity and queerness, as well as discuss the propositions Gilpin made for both queer and Native self-determination and sovereignty through the book’s visuals.
Dr. Siddons will travel to the United Kingdon in Spring 2021.
