I'm KATHRYN DESPLANQUE
and I'm an artist
and art historian
Kathryn Desplanque, PhD is a queer mixed Black multi-generational immigrant. She lives in the United States, hails from Canada, and is born to Caribbean (St. Kitts & Nevis) and Dutch parents.
Her artwork, scholarship, and community service draw from her experience of liminality across categories of sexual identity, nationality and status, class, and race.
She is currently assistant professor of 18th and 19th century European art at UNC Chapel Hill in their Art & Art History department.
She co-chairs the Board of Directors for the Digital Arts Resource Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
And she is member-at-large for the Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Accessibility Committee for the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
