“This talk examines the neuroscientific turn across the humanities, and in relationship to art history in particular. I explore new media artist Mariko Mori’s (b. 1967, Japan) multimedia installation ‘Wave UFO’ as a provocative entry into debates about the increasing influence of the brain sciences.”

Kate Mondloch is associate professor and director of graduate studies at the UO Department of the History of Art and Architecture. Mondloch, a CSWS faculty affiliate, received a 2010 CSWS Faculty Research Grant in support of her research.
