Larissa Buchholz is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies and holds a courtesy appointment in the Department of Sociology, Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences. Before joining Northwestern, she was a junior fellow at the Society of Fellows at Harvard University. 

Buchholz’s substantive work centers on the dynamics of cultural production and markets in global context. Her forthcoming book, The Global Rules of Art, examines the emergence of a global art field and the different ways that artists become valued worldwide. A second book project explores the cross-border formation of audiences and taste cultures through the lens of global art collectors. Informed by her empirical research, Buchholz also engages with broader questions of methodology and theorizing in transnational and global analysis.

Buchholz serves on the editorial board of Sociological Theory and is an affiliated faculty member of the Critical Realism Network at Yale University.​ For more information, see her personal site at larissabuchholz.soc.northwestern.edu
