Introducing Katherine Iselin, HECAA’s Social Media Manager

Posted in Member News by Editor on August 1, 2019

I’m Katherine Iselin, the new social media manager for HECAA. I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Missouri in Art History and Archaeology, focusing on Greek and Roman art and architecture with a minor in eighteenth-century European art. My dissertation, “Historia Spintriae: The Pleasures of Collecting Ancient Erotica,” focuses on the role of Roman erotic art in the collecting culture and creation of pornography during the early modern period.

I look forward to expanding HECAA’s online profile. I see HECAA’s social media presence as a way to connect professional historians to those outside the academic world in a fun and informative manner. These platforms will also be used to highlight some of the art that is frequently omitted from the art historical canon. If you have an idea about an underrepresented topic you would like to see featured in HECAA’s social media, please get in touch with me. Most posts will spotlight select works from the long eighteenth century, but I also plan to do a #MicroMonday feature! These posts will include ‘close up’ details of an unknown work and ask followers to try and identify it.

I welcome comments from members with other new ideas for creative posts! If you are going to a conference, please contact me about potentially doing some guest posts, either by direct messaging on the platforms or email me at iselinkatherine@gmail.com. You can also use #HECAA so I can share your posts.

Please follow HECAA on these platforms:

Facebook: HECAA – Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture (or username: @HECAAonline)

Looking forward to what lies ahead!
