Abram Coetsee researches and teaches on topics at the intersection of aesthetics and politics, as they appear in the fields of archival practice and public art. He looks to digital methods for ways to transform scholarly practices which currently lack adequate means and properly designed technologies to support contemporary endeavors in the humanities. Here, digital practices can address the gap between traditional academic practices and twenty-first century cultural life.
Abram holds bachelors degrees in English and Religious studies from U.C. Berkeley, and is a junior fellow at the Berkeley Institute. As a 2015-2016 fellow at the New York Council for the Humanities, he looks at gentrification, methods of archivization and the aesthetics of political community in a project on contemporary graffiti writing in New York City.
