Dr. Larsen joined the faculty at UA Little Rock in 2016. She held a pre-doctoral fellowship at the Frederick Douglas Institute for African and African-American Studies at the University of Rochester. Her dissertation research in African art history dealt with issues of post-colonial identity as manifest through architecture.

She spent nine months in Abomey as a Fulbright Fellow from 2012-2013.
