Wisconsin native Beth Zinsli received her Ph.D. in art history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014. Her dissertation reconsidered the medium of photography as a system of visual and aesthetic representation within the context of the contemporary Spanish Caribbean and its U.S. diasporas in four discrete but interconnected case studies utilizing ideas of fracture, fragmentation, and incoherence. In addition to her position as director and curator of the art galleries and collections at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, she teaches courses in the history and theory of photography and museum studies in the Department of Art and Art History and serves as the director of the Museum Studies interdisciplinary program on campus.
