Peri M. Klemm, Ph.D. is Professor of African, Oceanic, and Native American art history.  Her courses address the cultural context of global arts and the receptions and display of non-Western art in the West. Her published materials focus on identity, dress, and the body in the Horn of Africa.  Peri has received a Fulbright award and an Andrew W. Mellon grant to conduct research on African art.

At the CSUN Art Galleries, she has co-curated with her exhibition design students Sewn Stories: Fante Flags from Ghana,’ ‘San Simon: Manifestations of a Guatemalan Folk Saint,’ ‘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.  Peri is currently the editor for the arts of Africa for Smarthistory at Khan Academy and an editor for the journal African Art.  Beginning in 2019, Peri will be president of the Arts Council of the African Studies Association.
