Natalie S. Loveless
Natalie S. Loveless is an associate professor at the University of Alberta, where she teaches in the History of Art, Design and Visual Culture and directs the Research-Creation and Social Justice CoLABoratory (researchcreation.ca). Her forthcoming book with Duke University Press, How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation, examines debates surrounding research-creation and its institutionalization, paying particular attention to what it means – and why it matters – to make and teach art research-creationally in the North American university today. She recently completed New Maternalisms, a project bringing together feminist art practice, theory and curation, and an interdisciplinary collaborative project on global vaccination called Immune Nations that culminated in a high-profile exhibition at the United Nations in Geneva during the 2017 World Health Assembly. Loveless currently co-leads Speculative Energy Futures, a multi-year project that is part of the Just Powers initiative funded by the Future Energy Systems CFREF and a SSHRC Insight grant (justpowers.ca), and, during the 2018-19 academic year, is in residence as a visiting scholar in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture (CISSC), where she is developing a new project, Sensing the Anthropocene: Aesthetic Attunement in an age of Urgency.
