Laura Moure Cecchini

Laura Moure Cecchini is Assistant Professor of Art History at Colgate University, where she teaches courses on the global avant-gardes and modernisms.

She also studies the artistic and cultural exchanges between Italy and Latin America, in particular Mexico and Argentina, during the Fascist ventennio. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Harvard University, CIMA, the Académie de France, and the Wolfsonian Collection, among other institutions. Her writings have appeared or are forthcoming in journals such as The Art Bulletin, Art History, Modernism/modernity, Italian Studies, and the International Yearbook of Futurist Studies.
