An NYU graduate (Ph.D. '98) and Associate Professor of Art History at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, Mary Brantl teaches across the Art History discipline with a particular focus on her own work on History of Photography. In recent years key research and presentations have dealt with immigrant photographers in mid-20th-century America, including her SPE-South Central 2013 presentation on Marion Palfi. Her most recent significant publication was an essay on the German years of abstract artist Paul Fontaine for the 2013 Work Standing Up: The Life and Work of Paul Fontaine catalog. Her 2014 SPE-South Central presentation draws on a unique, collaborative teaching experience that produced the material which became the 2013 Enduring Women exhibition at the Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin.
