Assistant Professor

Shane Strate

I received my PhD in Southeast Asian history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009. My geographic area of specialization is Thailand; thematic interests include imperialism, nationalism, and post-colonialism. Prior to arriving at Kent State University I taught at Wayne State College in Nebraska.

John-Michael Warner

John-Michael H. Warner is an art historian trained in gender and women’s studies. Professor Warner teaches histories and theories of contemporary art, art at the turn of the twenty-first century, and contemporary photography as well as environmental art history and nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art—each from a feminist and queer perspective.

Benjamin Fregoso

My research activities are in theoretical condensed matter physics. My main interest is the investigation of out-of-equilibrium mesoscopic systems, strongly correlated quantum dipolar gases, and topological effects on optical properties of semiconductors. I am interested in their new collective behavior emerging due to competing interactions. Employing the tools of quantum statistical mechanics of many body systems, I am analyzing analytically and numerically phenomena such as quantum magnetism, superconductiviy and ferroelectricity.
