Richard Meyer, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History at Stanford University, teaches courses in twentieth-century American art, the history of photography, arts censorship and the first amendment, curatorial practice, and gender and sexuality studies. His first book, Outlaw Representation: Censorship and Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century American Art, was awarded the Charles C. Eldredge  Prize for Outstanding Scholarship from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.  In 2013, he published What Was Contemporary Art?, a study of the idea of “the contemporary” in early twentieth-century American art, and, with Catherine Lord, Art and Queer Culture, a survey focusing on the dialogue between visual art and non-normative sexuality from 1885 to the present.  At Stanford, he teaches courses on twentieth-century American art, the history of photography, censorship and the public sphere, and feminist and queer studies.
