Shepard Steiner


Associate Professor


Dr. Shepherd Steiner is assistant professor of contemporary art and theory at the School of Art. He is in dialogue with a wide range of contemporary photographic practices and actively researches the ways in which the interpretative dynamics encountered on the micro level of photography are mediated by larger issues in the political crucible. This research is inclusive of the theoretical notion of teleopoiesis and opens onto the horizon of ethics.
