Sascha Scott is an assistant professor of art history at Syracuse University specializing in American art. She is also a member of the Native American Studies faculty. She offers broad surveys of American and American Indian visual culture. She also teaches seminars that expand out from her research, including courses that explore representation of American Indians, the intersection of art and politics and art and environmental issues. Scott is the author of "A Strange Mixture: The Art and Politics of Painting Pueblo Indians," which examines representations of American Indians by Anglo and Native artists and the fight against assimilation between the two World Wars.
Her most recent article in "Art Bulletin" explores the politics of indigenous knowledge; this essay won the College Art Association’s Arthur Kinsley Porter Prize, which is awarded to the best article of the year by an emerging scholar. Scott earned her Ph.D. in art history from Rutgers University, M.A. in art history from George Washington University and B.A. in anthropology from The Colorado College.
