Kelema Lee Moses is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Occidental College whose work focuses on critical contemporary issues in the architectural and urban landscape of Pacific island cities. Her current book project, Island Modernism/Island Urbanism: Encountering Statehood in Honolulu, Hawai’i, suggests that island cities offer a place-based perspective to urban studies that must also account for spatial limitations; where architects and planners must develop inventive approaches to balance economic interests, environmental issues, and Indigenous imperatives. She is currently an ACLS/Getty Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Art at the Getty Research Center.
