For many years, Dr. Bassett has conducted research on CIA's history. With Henry Adams, he is now writing a book about the school. For some examples of his research, visit http://cia.edu/history. At the top of that page, via the link "CIA at CMA," you can see 100 artworks in the Cleveland Museum of Art collection that were created by CIA people between 1882 and the present. A few profiles of historic alumni, like Tiffany lamp designer Clara Driscoll and interior architect and portrait artist Charles Sallée, can also be explored from this page.

On June 11, 2013, Mark Bassett's 1985 Ph.D. dissertation--John Horne Burns: Toward a Critical Biography--was published electronically: http://hdl.handle.net/10355/35623. This account draws from the novelist's correspondence, which, until recently, the family wouldn't allow to be published.

As a collector, dealer, and researcher specializing in American ceramics, Mark frequently speaks on this topic. He and his partner George Cooper were lenders to "The Jazz Age" exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Fall 2017.

Courses  Art & Its Social Life in Madagascar | Social Science & Aesthetic Practice: An Introduction

Degree PhD, University of Pennsylvania
MA, University of Pennsylvania
BA, Case Western Reserve University

I am an anthropologist and folklorist working in the United States and Madagascar.

My PhD dissertation research focused on the interrelations between the people indigenous to the southeastern rain forest regions of Madagascar and national and international conservation and development actors concerned with the island. In considering such interrelations, I focus on communication dynamics (especially ritual communication), conservation and development rationales and technologies of governance, and democratic processes, practices and potentialities. I continue research on these topics and also work with Malagasy art practices and diaspora groups in the Washington, DC area and in New York City.

I am currently working on theorizing collective political events ("riots") through a Deluezoguattarian-inspired ontology of the site. Two events in particular are the focus of ongoing empirical research: the Hough and Glenville "riots" that occurred in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966 and 1968 respectively.

I am also an educator. My pedagogical approach owes a great deal to the Brazilian educator and educational theorist Paulo Friere's understanding of education as a “practice of freedom.” Accordingly, my efforts to teach concepts constituting the social are inseparably tied to struggles to overcome various forms of oppression.
