My name is Andi Gustavson and I am currently a Ph.D. student at The University of Texas at Austin in the Department of American Studies. I study personal snapshots and war, most specifically during the Cold War period. I teach courses on visual culture, American photography and literature, and social documentary rhetoric at The University of Texas at Austin and currently work as a Curatorial Assistant in Photography at the Harry Ransom Center.

I am happy to answer any questions you have about the Personal Pin-Up Project. Please feel free to contact me at
