Juergen Heinrichs, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Art History

College of Communication and the Arts


Dr. Heinrichs's research explores how art and visual culture register and shape processes of cultural translation.

I came to the United States as a graduate student in the early 1990s. After completion of my degree, I taught for a year at Swarthmore College, and then in 1997, I joined the faculty at Seton Hall University. A member of the Department of Art, Music and Design and affiliated with the M.A. in Museum Professions program, I have been offering a variety of courses on Western Art, American Art, African American Art, Art Since 1945, History of Photography, as well as graduate seminars in Museum Technologies and a seminar abroad Berlin: Reinventing the Cultural Capital. In addition to my classroom duties, I chaired and coordinated Seton Hall's participation in the Internationalization Laboratory of the American Council on Education.
