She is currently director of research at Monument Lab; visiting scholar at the Center for Public Art and Space at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design; and a member of the New Orleans City Planning Commission. Mobley was co-director of Paper Monuments, a public art and public history project that invited residents to imagine new monuments for New Orleans. She is the author of Human Rights, Human Wrongs, Observation of Human Rights Law and Norms in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, a contributor to Remaking New Orleans: Beyond Exceptionalism and Authenticity, and a contributor to Teachable Monuments: Using Public Art to Spark Dialogue and Confront Controversies, forthcoming from Bloomsbury Press.
