Ilene D. Lieberman PhD

Professor in the Gabriel Lukas Chair of Fine Arts

  • PhD Art History (Art & Archaeology) 1983

    Princeton University (NJ)

  • BA Comparative Literature and French 1976

    University of California--Berkeley (CA)

My research interests focus on commemoration, on how cultures define and pay homage to their "heroic dead." I am particularly interested in the disparate forms of modern remembrance how, where, and whom we memorialize as well as the interplay between aesthetics and politics that so often complicates public display.
