Trevor Brandt


Trevor Brandt studies the material culture of immigration and multi-sensory objects within the domestic sphere. His research blends visual and material culture through interdisciplinary methodologies to study early American print objects and their roles within household spaces. Trevor was previously the curator of the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia, where he curated exhibitions on folk textiles, mid-century glass, and the illustrator Gustaf Tenggren. He received his MA from the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture and his BA from the Pennsylvania State University. His forthcoming chapter within an edited volume (De Gruyter) examines a genre of printed prayer objects among German-Americans. He is a Neubauer Family Distinguished Doctoral Fellow.
