“Decolonizing the Museum”

Chitra Ramalingam in Conversation with Matt Jacobson.
Part of the ongoing “Democracy in America” @ the NHFPL series 

Chitra Ramalingam is a historian of science and historian of photography. She received her PhD in History of Science from Harvard University in 2009, after a BA in Physics and Philosophy from Harvard and an MPhil in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge. She was a British Academy postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cambridge before arriving at Yale. Her research, teaching, and curatorial work range broadly across topics in science and visual/material culture, with a particular focus on the visual culture of physics (19th and 20th centuries); on 19th-century “ways of seeing” (especially optical illusions, optical toys, and the pre-history of cinema); the early history of photography;  changing discourses about photography as “art” or “science”; and decolonial museum practice.
