Trained as an art historian, Dylan Miner holds a PhD from The University of New Mexico – with a focus on Arts of the Américas – and has published extensively. To date, he has published more than sixty journal articles, book chapters, critical essays, and encyclopedia entries – some that you can download below. His book Creating Aztlán: Chicano Art, Indigenous Sovereignty, and Lowriding Across Turtle Island was published in 2014 by the University of Arizona Press. Miner is uncertain if he will return to academic writing. In the meantime, he is frequently publishing risograph artist books, both through his own press, as well as with art book publishers.
Note: additional and updated texts are available here, as well.
