Clayton Kindred specializes in nineteenth-century French art and visual culture, particularly in relation to the politics of race, sexuality and colonialism. His dissertation, “An Archaeology of Castration: The Image of the Eunuch in Nineteenth-Century France,” examines the representation of the eunuch in nineteenth-century France across various media and explores its relation to period views on gender and sexuality. Clayton’s work has been supported by several funds at Ohio State as well as by the Big Ten Academic Alliance. Prior to Ohio State, Clayton received his BA from the University of Dayton and his MA from Brown University.
