Jaleh Mansoor

Associate Professor, the Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory, University of British Columbia.

Jaleh Mansoor specializes in modern and contemporary cultural production, Marxism, Marxist feminism, and critical theory. Mansoor’s research on abstract painting in the context of the miracolo Italiano and the international relations of the Marshall Plan era nested within the global dynamics of the Cold War opens up on to problems concerning the labour-to-capital relationship and its ramifications in culture and aesthetics.
