Caroline is a Ph.D Candidate in Art History at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Her focus is on emerging modalities of viewing and spectatorship, particularly as they interact with architecture, capital, and the built environment. She conducts research primarily on the late nineteenth century in France. She is a born-and-raised Midwesterner and has been living in New York for the past five years. She can always be counted on for an ice cream recommendation and loves sharing the stories of vaulting humanity (and, often, hubris) behind so much of New York's beloved architecture. Before her current position as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the GC, she graduated with honors from the University of Chicago and has held positions at the Art Institute of Chicago, Sotheby’s Art Auction House, and the Hyde Park Art Center.
