Jeremy Culler received his MA in Art History from the University of Florida and a PhD in the history and theory of art and architecture from Binghamton University. He teaches courses on the history and theory of modern and contemporary art, photography, film, and electronic, time-based media. While his teaching interests traverse theoretical and cross-disciplinary approaches to the history of art, the built environment and the expanded field of visual culture, his research focuses on the discursive field of electronic, time-based media, with particular attention paid to experimental television and video. His dissertation “From Television Signal to Magnetic Strip: An Archaeology of Experimental Television and Video Knowledge” (2011) addresses the way in which the concept of “Video Art” emerges, operates, and is constricted by a number of institutional factors. In it, he also proposes a framework for thinking about experimental television, video and other electronic, time-based media that are heterogeneous, dispersed and institutionally variable. His dissertation research was supported by academic and doctoral fellowships from Binghamton University and the Rosa Colecchio Travel Award for Dissertation Research. Dr. Culler has recently presented papers at Alfred University, the Frick Collection and the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, and Binghamton University. His current research projects include a text that explores bodily presence and narcissism in early video performances and a manuscript on the discursive field of electronic, time-based media. Before coming to SUNY Fredonia, he taught at Binghamton University and University of Florida.
