Alan Braddock is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Temple University in Philadelphia, where he teaches courses in the history of American art and visual culture from the colonial period to the present. Later this year, the University of Alabama Press will release A Keener Perception: Ecocritical Studies in American Art History, an interdisciplinary collection of essays co-edited by him and Christoph Irmscher, a member of the English Department at Indiana University. Braddock and Irmscher also have been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to direct a Summer Institute on “Picturing John James Audubon” at Indiana University in July 2009. In 2006-2007, Braddock was a faculty fellow-in-residence at Harvard University’s Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, working on his book-in-progress Gun Vision: The Ballistic Imagination in American Art from Homer to O’Keeffe, which explores the relationship between art and arms, seeing and shooting, in the United States between the Civil War and World War I.
