Professor O'Brien offers a sequence of undergraduate and graduate courses in theory and criticism,
the art of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, and a survey of Latin American
and Latina/o art. Dr. O’Brien has lectured locally, nationally and internationally on global feminisms,
global modernisms, and the work of under-represented artists. She is the editor of the  anthology, 
Modern Art in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: An Introduction to Global Modernisms, 
published by
Wiley Blackwell in 2014 and distributed internationally. Elaine’s current research project situates
art produced in Northern California in the 1960s and ‘70s within the global and local context of
that era’s sociopolitical revolutions and paradigm shift from the modern to the postmodern.
