The Soapbox

A few words on the image at the start of The Soapbox (and pictured below) because I cannot ask materialists to not talk a little about an object when presented with one. Unfortunately, though, I have very little to say about this one; maybe someone else will have something to add.

The Soapbox

​Let me start with a disclosure: I did my M.A. in Art History at the University of Wisconsin and am now a Ph.D. candidate in the Art History department at the University of Minnesota. Furthermore, my experiences, in terms of my research interests and the scholars with whom I have worked and currently work, are based in American material culture. Individuals in other disciplines and at other institutions may have wildly different experiences.
