Candace Keller, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of African art and culture, Department of Art and Art History, Keller will provide continued consultation on cultural collections (especially African) and work closely with the MSU Museum cultural history staff to strengthen research and teaching use of the collections. Her recent research centers on the histories of photographic practice in Mali, West Africa, which is the subject of her forthcoming book Imaging Culture: Photography in Mali, West Africa (Indiana University Press, 2017) and has been working with MSU Museum cultural history staff on the development of the NEH grant which is providing major support for the project. She has also been in discussions on an exhibition at the MSU Museum drawn from her research in Mali.
