About Christina Spiker

Christina Spiker is an art historian with expertise in modern Japanese art and visual culture. Her interdisciplinary research explores modern representations of the indigenous people of northern Japan known as the Ainu, and the global networks of image and art exchange that inform stereotypes about them in Japan and abroad. At St. Kate's, Christina teaches courses in the fundamentals of art history and visual culture. She believes in researching and teaching about art history "from the margins" by focusing on the rich experiences of women and underrepresented peoples across the globe. She has a strong interest in working with students to combine art and technology through the digital humanities and finds her greatest reward in helping students to explore the profound relationship between visual culture and the social issues of our time.
