Peri M. Klemm, Ph.D. is associate professor of African, Oceanic, and Native American art history. Her courses address the cultural context of non-Western arts and the receptions and display of non-Western art in the West. Her dissertation and published materials focus on identity, dress, and the body in Oromia. At the CSUN Art Galleries, she has co-curated with her exhibition design students ‘African Arts in the Lifecycle’, ‘Island Affinities: Contemporary Arts of Oceania’, and ‘Bareedina: Women of Oromia.’ A book on the historical and contemporary body art practices of Oromo women in Ethiopia and Kenya is forthcoming. She received her doctorate in African art history and a master's in Ancient American art history from Emory University.
