Art and Archaeology

Nathan Stobaugh has entered his third year of study in the Department of Art and Archaeology. His research focuses on modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on art produced in Europe after the Second World War. Before coming to Princeton, Nathan worked in the curatorial department of the Saint Louis Art Museum where he collaborated on an exhibition surveying German art since the 1960s. He subsequently received his master’s degree in the History of Art at Williams College. Nathan is interested in tracing artistic developments across various media and alongside histories of psychology and psychiatry, with a particular focus on psychoanalysis and its intersections with aesthetics and political theory. His further areas of inquiry include art historiography and pedagogy, the intellectual history of sex and gender, rhetoric and semiotics in relation to the visual arts, mass psychology and totalitarianism.
