ANNA LEHR MUESER
AB O UT ME
I am fascinated by tactile, and craft knowledge, how people and place intersect, how conceptions of landscape and nature influence how we live and understand ourselves, and how the individual and collective past come to bear on every day life.
AS AN ARTIST,
I work in letterpress, book arts, and watercolor. I have served on the board of The Soapbox: Community Print Shop & Zine Library since 2014.
AS A SCHOLAR,
I am a PhD candidate in the History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania. I work on collective memory, displacement, and living with technological systems.
My dissertation, with the working title “Land After Technology”, explores collective memory, place, belonging, and knowledge in New York City’s rural watershed in the 20th and 21st centuries.
In 2022-2023 I am a Humanities, Urbanism, and Design Doctoral Fellow and a Wolf Humanities Center Graduate Fellow.
