Jennie Goldstein

is a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Stony Brook University where she specializes in late modern and contemporary art. Her focus is on intersections of visual art and dance, and her in-progress dissertation, “Moving Bodies, Moving Things: Convergences of Art and Dance, 1960–1975,” reveals historical underpinnings for the recent surge in dance in museums. She is currently a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow and an Education Research Fellow, New Building Project at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Prior to pursuing her doctorate she worked as a senior curatorial assistant at the Whitney, where she contributed to many exhibitions and publications. She participated in the 2013 Mellon Dance Studies in/and the Humanities summer seminar, and has presented her research at national conferences including the College Art Association (CAA) and the Society of Dance History Scholars (SDHS). For the February 2015 CAA meeting she is co-chairing a panel called “Dance in the Art Museum” that will bring together art historians, dance scholars, practitioners, and curators to continue discussions on the politics, logistics, and impact of movement-based performances in sites historically committed to displaying art objects.
