Jeremy Culler joined the faculty at the University of South Carolina Aiken as an Assistant Professor of Art History in 2014.  He holds a MA in Art History from the University of Florida and a PhD in the History and Theory of Art and Architecture from Binghamton University.  At USC Aiken, he teaches a wide range of courses on the history of art and architecture.

While his teaching interests traverse the history of art and architecture, Dr. Culler’s research addresses the impact of technology on modern and contemporary art practices, focusing specifically on the intersections of cinema, photography, and New Media.  His most recent work is published in The Emergence of Video Processing Tools, the first comprehensive book on video and image processing in art.  This work extends research conducted for his dissertation, “From Television Signal to Magnetic Strip: An Archaeology of Experimental Television and Video Knowledge” (2011), which proposes a framework for thinking about electronic, time-based media as heterogeneous, dispersed, and institutionally variable.

In addition to numerous talks given in the community, Dr. Culler has presented papers at Alfred University, Binghamton University, the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC), the Frick Collection and the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, the Southeastern College Art Association, and the University of Florida.  His current projects include a text that explores bodily presence in early video performances, a curatorial project on the New Television Workshop for WGBH Boston, an exhibition on Livio Orazio Valentini, and a manuscript on electronic, time-based media.  Before coming to USC Aiken, he taught at Binghamton University, the State University of New York Fredonia, and the University of Florida.
