Dr. Sonal Khullar, W. Norman Brown Associate Professor of South Asian Studies, Department of the History of Art, University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Khullar specializes in the art of South Asia from the eighteenth century onward. Drawing on scholarship in anthropology, feminist theory, and postcolonial studies, her research and teaching interrogate the global turn in art history rather than taking its significance and implications for granted. She is particularly interested in histories of cosmopolitanism, postcolonial art worlds, art-writing and life-writing, critical historiographies of art, aesthetic theories, feminist geography, the anthropology of art, cross-cultural exchange, and the problem of comparison across areas and periods.
