Amanda A. Douberley is a historian of twentieth-century American sculpture and public art. She holds a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin, and a B.A. in Art History, as well as English Language and Literature, from the University of Virginia.
Her research explores the intersection of mid-twentieth-century American sculpture, architecture, design, and urban planning. She is currently revising her dissertation, "The Corporate Model: Sculpture, Architecture, and the American City, 1946-1975," for publication. In it she situates post-war American sculpture in the context of public relations practices and urban renewal.

Previously, Amanda taught in the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 2014-2017.
