Rui Gomes Coelho is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies program at the Department of Art History, Rutgers University. He is an archaeologist interested in historical archaeology, archaeology of the contemporary, critical heritage and photography. His current interests are driven by a fascination with the sensorial constitution of alternative modernities, and for marginal communities who mobilize material culture against traditional, nationalist-oriented approaches to heritage. He has been collaborating with archaeological projects based in the U.S., Portugal, Brazil, Germany, and Spain. Recent publications include “An Empire of Clay: Ceramics and Discipline in the Early Modern Portuguese Empire” in the volume Practicing Materiality, edited by Dr. Ruth Van Dyke with the University of Arizona Press, 2015 and the essay “The Garden of Refugees”, published by the Journal of Contemporary Archaeology, 2017. As a photographer, Dr. Coelho participated in several individual and collective shows in the U.S., U.K. and Portugal.
