Johanna Gosse's research sits at the intersection of modern and contemporary art history and film and media studies. She is currently completing a book project, entitled Atomic Sublime: The Experimental Films of Bruce Conner. This project is based on her dissertation research on Conner's films, which was supported by a predoctoral fellowship from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation. Johanna's essay, "EASTER MORNING: Bruce Conner's Second Coming," was included in the exhibition catalogue for BRUCE CONNER: IT'S ALL TRUE, organized by the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in 2016.

Johanna's next book project, On Site: Ray Johnson’s New York, positions Johnson’s early mail art and performance practice as a key conceptual precedent for contemporary network aesthetics and online social media. She received an Arts Writers Grant for On Site from the Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation in 2015.

Johanna's writing has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Art JournalCamera Obscura,MIRAJ: Moving Image Review and Art Journal, Radical History Review, and the Journal of Black Mountain College Studies, as well as exhibition catalogues and edited collections, including Abstract Video: The Moving Image in Contemporary Art, ed. Gabrielle Jennings(Oakland: University of California Press, 2015).
