Elizabeth A. Kozlowski is a second year PhD student in Cultural Anthropology. Kozlowski earned her M.A. with Honors in Museum Studies from Arizona State University, Tempe and a B.F.A. in studio art awarded by Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton. Her research examines the intersections of material culture, activism and traditional craft practice. This relationship is examined from three contexts: the object-human relationship, contemporary fiber processes and museological practices. Specifically, the relationship between disparate cultural backgrounds is used as a framework for understanding craft as social practice; a process invested in skill, material, and identity. Kozlowski has been awarded numerous curatorial residencies and travel grants including the 2018 Creative New Zealand Cultural Exchange Grant; the 2017 Windgate ITE Scholar-in-Residence at the Center for Art and Wood, Philadelphia; and the Danish Arts Foundation International Research Grant in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Kozlowski is a frequent contributor for Ceramics Monthly and the quarterly journal, Surface Design.
