Special Interests

Professor Hornstein is a specialist of nineteenth-century French art and visual culture.  Her current book project focuses on the relationships between visual representations of war, emergent modes of visual production across a range of media, and structures of political power from the French Revolution through the Crimean War (1789-1856).  Her teaching and research interest include nineteenth-century technologies of visual reproduction (lithography, photography, early film) and their interaction with more established media, such as painting, the shifting sets of  boundaries between art and industry, the rise of early mass culture, reception theory and history, nineteenth-century material culture and the history of industrial exhibitions and world's fairs.
