Janine Yorimoto Boldt received her Ph.D. in American Studies from the College of William & Mary this past spring. Her dissertation, "The Art of Plantation Authority: Domestic Portraiture in Colonial Virginia," explored the social and political functions of colonial portraiture from the mid-17th century to the American Revolution. She previously worked at the Colonial Williamsburg Art Museums and as a teaching fellow at William & Mary. Her research has been supported by Winterthur, Colonial Williamsburg, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, and the Virginia Museum of History & Culture. Janine is the 2018–2020 Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow at the APS and is working on the 2019 exhibit on maps in early America and will be lead curator of the 2020 exhibit on Benjamin Franklin's science.
