Anna Seastrand's work broadly addresses the relationships between visual, oral, and written texts in South Asian art, with particular focus on physical and notional landscapes, pilgrimage, and performance. Her book in progress, The Kinesthetic Temple, foregrounds movement as central to understanding mural painting in early modern south Indian temples. Seastrand earned her PhD with Distinction from Columbia University in 2013 and currently serves as Assistant Professor of South Asian Art at the University of Minnesota. During her residency at the Neubauer Collegium, she is collaborating on the Interwoven project.
