Katharine Stein

Katharine Stein is an incoming MA student in the department of Art History at Concordia University. Her research presently focuses on audio archives comprising sound and performance art, interviews, diaries and oral histories, and how these materials can provide an alternate mode of access to art historical narratives. Taking her cue from recent feminist writing that incorporates overlooked archival sources such as diary and correspondence, she approaches the specific properties of aurality as they relate to the informal, anecdotal qualities of marginal histories. She holds a BFA with distinction from Concordia’s undergraduate Art History program, and was granted a Concordia Undergraduate Student Research Award in 2013. She has worked as a faculty research assistant since 2013. She also organizes a regular series of events that pair film screenings with live sound accompaniment by local artists.
