Leadville, Colorado

My name is Lori Hall-Araujo and I study dress as a mode of communication.  I'm interested in material culture and the ways people engage with media to create meaning.  I have worked in museums and private collections to organize and curate.  My research, which I've presented and published internationally, often engages ethnographic methods.  I am currently a Visiting Scholar in the Museum and Exhibitions Studies (MUSE) Program at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
