Professor Arabindan-Kesson is an assistant professor of African American and Black Diasporic art at Princeton University, with a joint appointment in the Department of Art and Archaeology. She is also a faculty fellow at Wilson College. Born in Sri Lanka, she completed undergraduate degrees in New Zealand and Australia, and worked as a registered nurse in the UK before completing her PhD in African American Studies and Art History at Yale University.

Professor Arabindan-Kesson focuses on African American, Caribbean, and British Art, with an emphasis on histories of race, empire, and transatlantic visual culture in the long 19th century. In her teaching, she is committed to expanding and amplifying the spaces, and narratives, of art history. Her students are encouraged to engage directly with art objects and their socio-historical contexts through close visual analysis, interdisciplinary readings and discussion along with regular class sessions in the study rooms of Princeton’s libraries and museums, and local area collections.
