Assistant Professor, Art & Art History

Professor Rose Salseda is an assistant professor in the Department of Art & Art History at Stanford University. Specializing in the fields of African American and U.S. Latinx art, Professor Salseda’s research explores the politics of race and representation in the United States. Her first book foregrounds the 1992 Los Angeles Riots as a response to the injustices of state violence through the visual analyses of art. Closely reading works made by two generations of artists, Professor Salseda reveals how artists have challenged racially polarizing media portrayals and accounts of the unrest and underscored the complex intergenerational, cross-racial, and immigrant experiences of antiblackness and xenophobia.
