Beth Anne Lauritis received a B.A. in Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. She received M.A. in Modern and Contemporary Art History at the University of California, Riverside, and a Ph.D. in Contemporary Art History and Critical Theory at the University of California, Los Angeles. Lauritis is currently a Senior Lecturer in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Theory at Clemson University. Broader research interests include: theories of spectatorship and subjectivity (modern and postmodern); historiographies and theories of the avant-garde; gender and postcolonial studies; exhibition histories and theories; performance art, social practice art, surveillance art, and eco-art. Lauritis’ recent research investigates the politics underpinning the production, display, reception, and distribution of women's conceptual art in exhibitions involving the American art critic and curator, Lucy Lippard. These concerns extend to the ambiguity of language as a formal or conceptual device in a chapter entitled "In the Words of Susan Hiller and Annette Messager: Conceptualism and Feminism in Dialogue," published in Feminism Reframed: Reflections on Art and Difference. Lauritis has presented at regional and international conferences in the US, UK, and New Zealand.
