As a recipient of a Mellon Fellowship in Arts Practice and Scholarship at the University of Chicago, Chase’s recent speaking engagements include Harvard University, Princeton University, NYU, The New York Academy of Medicine, University of Manchester, UC Berkeley, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
