Sarah Archino received her PhD from the Graduate Center, City University of New York in 2012. Her dissertation, “Reframing the Narrative of Dada in New York, 1910-1926” examined the development of an American Dada aesthetic based on anarcho-individualism and the vernacular, proposing an iteration of Dada as a native, anti-institutional spirit. Her current manuscript project expands on these themes of anarchism and the vernacular in a broader examination of early-twentieth-century American modernism. She recently served two years as the Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in American Art at the Institut national d'histoire de l'art in Paris and one year as a research fellow with the Duchamp Research Center in Schwerin, Germany. Previous teaching appointments include Millsaps College, Franklin & Marshall, Hunter College, and Queens College. She is also a founder and co-editor of the AndOr Project, an online art space that explores the practices and implications of digitality for exhibition and archive research.
