Ramey Mize is a Ph.D. candidate in Art History at the University of Pennsylvania, specializing in nineteenth-century U.S., Latin American, and Native American art. Her dissertation, “War and Witness in American Visual Culture, 1861–1901,” illuminates the multiplicity of artistic representations and challenges surrounding three conflicts that shaped U.S. history: the Civil War, the Black Hills War, and the Spanish-Cuban-American- Filipino War. Broadly, the project explores how works of art functioned as testimony to these events of historical rupture, across socio-cultural borders and an increasingly complex media landscape. She is a 2020–21 Douglass Foundation Fellow in American Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and her research has also been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Previously, she has held curatorial fellowships and positions at the Colby College Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She holds a B.A. with Highest Honors in Art History from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and her M.A. with Distinction from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London.
