Kirsten Hoving

Kirsten Hoving joined the department in 1983, after earning her Ph.D. at Columbia University.  She teaches modern art and history of photography. 

Her research interests revolve around her teaching fields.  In particular, she has published widely on surrealism, with articles about surrealist photography in such journals as Art History and History of Photography, as well as an essay in the Guggenheim Museum's exhibition catalogue, Speaking with Hands. She is also interested in intersections between surrealist art and science, seen in her recent book, Joseph Cornell and Astronomy: A Case for the Stars, published by Princeton University Press in 2009.

Last fall, Kirsten Hoving was a guest lecturer at the Oregaard Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark, in conjunction with an exhibition at that museum of work by the artist Man Ray.
