Jon Davies

Jon has a background in film and queer studies, and prior to arriving at Stanford worked as a contemporary art curator at The Power Plant, Oakville Galleries and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. Jon's writing on cinema and contemporary art has been published in many anthologies, catalogues and journals, and he co-edited (with Sam Ashby) Little Joe magazine #5. His dissertation-in-progress, The Fountain: Art, Sex and Queer Pedagogy in San Francisco, 1945-1995, focuses on the intertwining of artistic and sexual experimentation in the Bay Area through the lens of pedagogy.
