Christine Slobogin, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Health Humanities and Bioethics at URMC, with a Joint Appointment in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Rochester. Prior to this, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Medicine and the Center for Medical Humanities & Social Medicine at Johns Hopkins University.

Her research lies at the intersection of art history and the health humanities, with her current book project focusing on surgical imagery and twentieth-century British visual culture. Other academic interests include anonymity and the ethics of medical photography, the history of emotions, and humor in visual art and in medicine.

Her research has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, Yale University's Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and Durham University's Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research. She has led scholarly networks for historians of British art and for medical humanists. She has also worked on curatorial projects for the National Portrait Gallery, London (on portraiture in the 1930s and during the Second World War), and for the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons of England (on art and facial reconstruction).
