PhD The Graduate Center of The City University of New York

Dr. Monica Lee Steinberg received her PhD from The Graduate Center of The City University of New York in modern and contemporary art history. Dr. Steinberg’s research and teaching pivots at the intersection of art, new media, and law and politics of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, with a specific focus on fictional attribution, legal studies, and activist humor in a global context.

Dr. Steinberg’s writing has appeared in journals such as American ArtArchives of American Art, and Oxford Art Journal, and exhibition catalogues such as the Venice Biennale’s Love Me, Love Me Not: Contemporary Art from Azerbaijan and its Neighbours and The Abstract Impulse: Fifty Years of Abstraction at the National Academy, 1956-2006.
