Research Interests

Susan Cahill is an assistant professor of Art History in the Department of Art. She completed her M.A. and Ph.D. in Visual and Material Culture Studies at Queen's University, Kingston.

Dr. Cahill's research broadly explores how exhibitions and art objects function to shape and reshape the category of "Canada" in the modern and contemporary periods. Focusing on a variety of visual and material cultural objects, her research projects within the field of Canadian Art History contribute to ongoing dialogues that question art through the lens of gender, settler-Indigenous relations, governance, and security, and that destabilize the concept of "Canada" in its relation to the writing and practices of Art History.
