Advisor: Leo Costello
James McCabe received a BA in Art from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2015 and an MA in Art History from Tufts University in 2018. His current research focuses on gender, colonialism, and nationalism in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century French art. His dissertation, Morisot Rêveuse, examines French Impressionist Berthe Morisot’s later artworks to piece together the relationship between the bourgeois interiors of the metropole and the French colonies. During his time at Rice University, James has served as the Art History Faculty-Graduate Student liaison and the Humanities Graduate Student Association President.
