Before joining the University of Missouri as a PFFIE postdoctoral fellow, Thomas Love received his PhD in Art History from Northwestern University. Love works at the intersection of contemporary art history, German studies, gender and sexuality studies, and critical race theory. His current book project, titled Queer Exoticism: Strategies of Self-Othering in West Germany, 1969–1994, analyzes queer art in post-’60s West Germany to show how representations of racial and ethnic difference became essential to the formation of contemporary queer identity. His writing has been published in Art in AmericaThe Germanic ReviewTexte zur Kunst and in the Art Institute of Chicago’s “Perspectives” series.
