Hannah Higgins has been a professor of art history at University of Illinois at Chicago since 1994. Her research and course topics examine twentieth century avant-garde art with a specific interest in Dadaism, Surrealism, Fluxus, Happenings, and performance art, food art, and early computer art. Her books and articles argue for the humanistic value of multimodal aesthetic experiences. Higgins is solo author of Fluxus Experience (University California Press, 2002) and The Grid Book (MIT Press, 2009) and co-editor with Douglass Kahn of Mainframe Experimentalism: Early Computing and the Foundations of Digital Art (University of California Press, 2012).
