Kate Palmer Albers is Associate Professor in the Art History Division, with a speciality in the History and Theory of Photography. Prior to joining the UA faculty, she taught at the Massachusetts College of Art and Boston University, and held curatorial positions in the photography departments at the Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge, MA dn the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Her book, Uncertain Histories: Accumulation, Inaccessibility, and Doubt in Contemporary Photography (University of California Press, 2015)addresses the limits of photography's ability to narrate the past andargues that doubt and inaccessibility can generate a space for a productive uncertainty that is as culturally valuable as information and clarity.

Albers’ current work focuses on the intersection of photography, geolocational technology, and landscape, and she is developing new research on photographic communication through social media. She is also interested in the role of digital technologies in art historical research and contemporary practice, as well as teaching. She organized the exhibition Locating Landscape: New Strategies, New Technologies which looked at the intersection of photography, mapping, technology, and landscape, and appeared at the Sam Lee Gallery (Los Angeles, 2009) and the Center for Creative Photography (Tucson, AZ, 2010). In 2010 she participated in the NEH Summer Institute Mapping and Art in the Americas at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
