Bio: 

Allison Springer recently completed a master’s degree in art history at the University of Alabama. Her MA thesis, “Mixed-Race Fantasies: Abolitionist Propaganda as Spectacles of Race in the Nineteenth Century,” focused on the ways nineteenth-century American photography revealed latent ideologies and fantasies concerning race and miscegenation. Her current interests include nineteenth-century European art and the transatlantic commonalities of visual culture between America and Europe, specifically, social and cultural history as it pertains to changing social ideals, technological advances, and the development of modernism.
