Emma Oslé (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) is an advanced Ph.D. Candidate in Art History at Rutgers University—New Brunswick, where she also teaches as an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Latinx and Caribbean Studies. As a specialist in Latinx and Latin American Art, her dissertation research examines contemporary US Latinx visual production surrounding motherhood, maternal subjects, and care practices. Other key research interests that are incorporated throughout the project at large include race, indigeneity, decolonial feminism, the medical humanities, and comparative literatures. 

Prior to beginning her doctoral program, Emma formally studied printmaking and sculpture in the studio, which often appears in her work as an emphasis on process-based art making practices. She is also active in various curatorial roles. Additionally, she has curatorial experience in several museums including the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Bentonville, AR), and multiple smaller institutions and private collections. In 2022, she participated in the ISLAA/CLAVIS Latinx and Latin American Art and Visual Culture Dissertation Workshop in Austin, TX, and her writing has appeared in catalog publications and the NYU Latinx Project’s digital journal, Intervenxions.
