Welcome to the website of Kayleigh C. Perkov, PhD
I (she/her) am an art historian who studies the intersection of design, technology, and gender. I received my PhD from the Department of Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine; my dissertation “Giving Form to Feedback: Craft and Technology circa 1968-1974” examines craft objects that synthesize handmaking and emergent technology.
I am currently a curatorial fellow with the Center for Craft, a visiting scholar at the Feminist Research Institute at UC Davis, and a member of the editorial board for The Journal of Modern Craft.
My past research has been generously supported by a predoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Center for Craft, and the Newkirk Center for Science and Society.
