Andrea came to the American Studies program at Yale after earning a Master’s Degree in the History of Decorative Arts, Design and Culture from the Bard Graduate Center where she won the Clive Wainwright award for best thesis.  She currently investigates how people in Queens, New York construct nationality  through everyday objects.  Using both material culture studies and ethnography, her project aims to address the common but overlooked ways that people negotiate belonging and distinction within their social and visual landscapes.
