Caitlin Frances Bruce, PhD. Is Assis­tant Professor of Commu­ni­ca­tion at the Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh. She researches public art in transna­tional and tran­si­tional contexts with a focus on graf­fiti, street art, muralism, and femi­nist art. Her first book is Painting Publics: Transna­tional Legal Graf­fiti Scenes as Spaces for Encounter. She is inspired by the way that public art can bring different people together, and is influ­enced by her back­ground volun­teering with her parent’s not-for-profit theater company in Wash­ington Heights, Moose Hall.
