Susan Cahill is a PhD Candidate and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Art at Queen’s University, Kingston. Susan’s academic interests include museum and material culture studies, cultural theory, conflict history and surveillance. Her dissertation, Contested Terrains: Visualizing the Nation within Global Military Conflicts, examines the intersections of visual and material culture with national/ist narratives and military history in Canada and Australia between 2001 and 2011. She has published in a variety of academic journals, including TOPIA: Canadian Journal of Cultural Theory, The Journal of Modern Craft, and Reviews in Cultural Theory.
