Remmel, Rachel

  • Assistant Dean and Executive Director, Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Interests: I am an art and social historian who focuses on the nineteenth-century United States with a particular emphasis on architectural history and museum studies. My research interests include social power, institutional history, building types, artistic practice, the construction of the categories of art and artist, and theories about the formative power of architecture. I have published articles about public school architecture (Boston, 1789-1860) and museum history (Cincinnati Art Museum founding, 1876-1890). I also direct the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, which supports faculty teaching and student learning, and teach in the Urban Fellows program run by the Center for Community Engagement.
