John-Michael H. Warner is an art historian trained in gender and women’s studies. Professor Warner teaches histories and theories of late modern and contemporary art and contemporary photography as well as environmental art history and nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art—each from a feminist and queer perspective. John-Michael holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and Art History from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, a Master’s degree in Art History from Arizona State University, and a PhD in Art History and a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies from the University of Arizona. Warner’s first manuscript Border Spaces: The U.S.-Mexico Frontera (University of Arizona, 2018), edited with Katherine G. Morrissey, is a series of art historical and environmental histories of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands from the turn of the twentieth-century through the turn of the twenty-first century. He is currently working on a manuscript that attends to Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Running Fence: A Project for California (under review). Warner’s research interests include: border/borderlands studies, landscape studies, eco-critical studies, theories of modern sculpture, and social/relational art.
