Kate Mondloch completed her undergraduate work in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and earned both her M.A. and Ph.D. in art history from UCLA. She joined the University of Oregon’s Department of the History of Art and Architecture in 2005. Prof. Mondloch teaches courses in contemporary art and theory. She has been department head since 2016. Her research interests focus on late 20th- and early 21st-century art, theory, and criticism, particularly as these areas of inquiry intersect with the cultural, social, and aesthetic possibilities of new technologies. Her research fields are wide-ranging and include screen-based media art and theory, postwar sculpture, contemporary craft, feminism, digital culture, science and technology studies, and the digital humanities. She is interested especially in theories of spectatorship and subjectivity, and in research methods that bridge the sciences and the humanities.  Prof. Mondloch is the author of Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2010)  and A Capsule Aesthethic: Feminist Materialisms in New Media Art (University of Minnesota Press, 2017). Prof. Mondloch has been published in a variety of journals, including Art Journal, Feminist Media Studies, Leonardo, and Vectors, and served on the editorial board of Art Journal. She has been awarded research fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), the University of California Humanities Research Institute, the Banff Centre, and the Oregon Humanities Center. Her research also has been supported by the Getty Research Institute and the Clark Art Institute. Prof. Mondloch received the University of Oregon's Faculty Excellence Award in 2013.
