Assistant Professor of CORE Liberal Arts Jeannine Kraft presented a paper at the 2014 Helsinki Photomedia conference in Helsinki, Finland, at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design, and Architecture March 26–28.

Titled “From Tourist Image to Fine Arts Vision: Framing the Irish Landscape,” Kraft’s paper examines the oppositional historical and cultural constructs of identity and their inherently problematic nature in the contemporary visual arts.

Kraft teaches medieval art, baroque art, e-learning design history, and contemporary art issues. Her background is in medieval Irish art, but she is currently working on issues of cultural identity in relationship to the landscape in contemporary Irish art. She is a doctoral researcher in Irish studies with the National University of Ireland and has presented her work at national and international conferences. Kraft earned her undergraduate degree in English and master’s degree in art history from Ohio State University.

    Read her paper (click on the link above) its a good one! I surely learned something I didn’t know: Fine Arts photography in Ireland is only 20/30 years into existence there. CCAD’s photo department could be a big influence on them as we have so many fine artists working with photo processes: our faculty and our students. Great job Jeannine, for mentioning that! The printmaking department is doing some very interesting and cutting edge work with photo also.
