Anthony E. Grudin
Anthony E. Grudin earned his M.A. and PhD. from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a multi-year Jacob K. Javits Scholar. He received his B.A. from Reed College, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
Professor Grudin is currently working on two major research projects focusing on Andy Warhol. The first project investigates Warhol’s appropriation of images, technologies, and affects associated with the working-class. This research has yielded essays in October and the Oxford Art Journal, a catalogue essay translated into Italian and German for the National Gallery’s Warhol: Headlines exhibition, an interview featured on Salon.com (http://www.salon.com/2012/03/14/warhol_working_class_imprint/), and a contract from the University of Chicago Press for a manuscript that is currently in the final stages of revision. The second project focuses on Warhol’s lifelong interest in animal life. This topic will be explored in an upcoming essay in Criticsm, a book chapter on “Creaturely Creativity,” an interview in a major exhibition catalogue, and a book proposal that is currently in the final stages of revision. In addition, Professor Grudin is co-curating an exhibition on the Pictures Generation, New York’s preeminent art movement of the 1970s, and has published essays on a variety of other topics.
Professor Grudin’s recent and upcoming courses include The Problem of the Animal, Identity & Diversity in Postmodern Art, The Pictures Generation, Art of the Sixties, and Methods and Theories of Art History. His teaching was profiled on UVM Today, and he has twice been nominated for UVM’s Kroepsch-Maurice Award for Excellence in Teaching.
