Kristina Huneault holds a Concordia University Research Chair in art history. She has an MA in Canadian art history from Concordia (1994) and a PhD in British visual culture from the University of Manchester (1998), where she was a Commonwealth Scholar. She has taught at Concordia since 1999, and was the university's emerging research fellow in 2004. Dr. Huneault's approach to art combines detailed historical research with theoretical questions about identity, difference, and the formation of the self. She is a founder of the Canadian Women Artists History Initiative, and the 2010 recipient of the Marion Dewar Prize in Canadian Women's History.
