sascha scottSascha Scott is a specialist in nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art and currently teaches at Syracuse University. Dr. Scott’s research focuses on problems at the intersection of art and politics, critically reevaluating what it means for a painting and an artist to be political. She is working on a book manuscript that explores early-twentieth-century representations of American Indians, including paintings and works on paper by John Sloan, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ernest L. Blumenschein, and Awa Tsireh.
