pierce cca photoKathleen Pierce is a PhD Candidate in the Rutgers Department of Art History whose work considers intersections of art and medicine in France's Third Republic. Her dissertation project, titled "Surface Tension: Skin, Disease, and Visuality in Third Republic France," examines a broad range of objects—from dermatological illustrations and wax-cast moulages, to public health posters and vanguard painting—to understand relationships between visualizations of the surface of the modern body and the surface in modern painting in fin-de-siècle France and its colonies.
