Dr. Gold joined the faculty at Tyler in 2005 as a specialist in 19th-and 20th-century American Art History, with specific interests in Racial Politics and Exhibition Theory. She has received postdoctoral fellowships from the Penn Humanities Forum, Winterthur Museum and Country Estate, the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to pursue research projects on the memory of the Civil War at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition, and the discourse of mixed race heritage in American visual culture. She has published in American Quarterly, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Civil War History, New England Quarterly, Mississippi Quarterly: The Journal of Southern Cultures, Reviews in American History, and the Grove Encyclopedia of American Art, and has delivered papers and lectures at the American Studies Association, the College Art Association, the American Historical Association, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Union League Club of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Ackland Art Museum, and Payne Theological Seminary. She is currently working on the Bishop Richard Allen Monument, 1876, the first public sculpture dedicated to an African American, and sponsored by African Americans.
