Research

Assistant Professor Nettleton currently has two broad research interests. The first is the relation between urban spatial politics and subjectivity and how they were articulated in avant-garde works of the 1960s and 1970s. His second research interest concerns visuality in historical and contemporary art practices in the context of the March 11, 2011 disaster and consequent nuclear meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
