Ph.D., Princeton University, 2022
Carmen Rosenberg-Miller is a postgraduate research associate in the Department of Art & Archaeology at Princeton University. She specializes in nineteenth-century European art. She is particularly interested in philosophies of identity, the idea of the artist, and the formation of the avant-garde in France.
Carmen is currently working on her first book project, based on her Ph.D. dissertation entitled “Representing Difference: Painting and Performance in the Art of Jean-François Raffaëlli.” Her book studies the problem of intersubjective representation in French art of the 1870s and 1880s. Through close study of Jean-François Raffaëlli’s artwork and writing, as well as his collaborations with well-known figures including Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Edmond de Goncourt, Joris-Karl Huysmans, and Auguste Rodin, the book interrogates the philosophical stakes of realism and its late reimagination.
Carmen received a Fulbright Award in support of her research in Paris at the Musée d’Orsay. She has delivered talks and lectures on 19th-century European and American art at domestic and international conferences and symposia. Before receiving her Ph.D. from Princeton, she received an M.A. in the History of Art from The Courtauld Institute of Art in London (2014) and a B.A. in Art History from Columbia University (2011).
