Karli Snyder is a second-year graduate student in the Art History department at the University of New Mexico. She received a bachelor’s degree in history with minors in medieval studies and art from UNM. Her area of thematic interests and studies is centered on late medieval European art history with a particular emphasis on the interdisciplinary studies of gender and feminism and their connection to material culture, textile arts, fashion, and their intersectionality with manuscript studies.
She is interested in how textiles, an art form unto themselves, have been used to formulate cultural, gender, economic, and social identities globally. Her secondary fields of interest include museum studies, curatorial and archival practices, collections management, object interpretation, and conservation techniques.
