Siobhan Angus is an art historian who specializes in the history of photography and the environmental humanities. As a short-term fellow at the Science History Institute, she continued her research on the chemical and material histories of photography for her current book project, Camera Geologica: Materiality, Resource Extraction, and Photography, which advances an eco-critical reading of photography with a focus on the visual culture of mining, materiality, and environmental justice.
During her stay at the Institute she was also a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in the History of Art at Yale University and a visiting scholar at the Yale Center for British Art. She has held fellowships at the American Philosophical Society, the Council for Canadian American Relations, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Library Company of Philadelphia, the Social Sciences and Research Council of Canada, the Science History Institute, the Paul Mellon Centre, and the Yale Center for British Art. Her research has been published in Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art, Radical History Review, and Capitalism and the Camera (Verso, 2021) and is forthcoming in Geohumanities and October.
