Professor Hornstein is a specialist of nineteenth-century French art and visual culture. Her teaching and research interests include the history of war imagery, nineteenth-century technologies of visual reproduction (print media and photography) and their interaction with more established media, such as painting, the rise of early mass culture, reception theory and history, nineteenth-century material culture, and most recently, the representation of animals. Professor Hornstein's current book project, Myth and Menagerie: Seeing Lions in Nineteenth-Century France, examines how visual representations of lions provided the basis for approaching a very human set of questions, including most notably issues related to sovereignty, empire and spectacle.
