About the Moderator

Carol Magee is a Professor of Art History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, specializing in African contemporary art with an emphasis on photography. Continuing her interest in the vital role that movement plays in our lives, her current research theorizes the interpretation of lens-based and sound art as it aligns with the theories and practices of the Feldenkrais Method®. As with all of her projects, she asks questions about how encounters with visual culture shape experiences of lives, about how knowledge is generated, and who is involved in the production of that knowledge. Her writings on these topics can be found in her books Africa in the American Imagination (2011), African Art, Interviews, Narratives (ed. with Joanna Grabski, 2013), and articles in journals such as Africa Today, African Arts, Evental Aesthetics, Photography & Culture, and Social Dynamics.
