In the spring semester 2021, I will be teaching the two introductory western art surveys, a survey of non-western art, and the history of digital art.
Innovation in the classroom
Just like everyone, I have been striving to adapt my teaching to meet the needs of my students during the pandemic. I have increased my efforts to learn about online teaching pedagogy, utilizing technology in the classroom, and backwards course design. In my department, we have transitioned to all of our classrooms to a flipped learning model. We are also piloting the use of Immersive and Virtual Realities to explore their application in higher education before these technologies are rolled out more broadly across campus.
I am excited to be presenting research on Eugène Delacroix’s 1826 portrait Louis-Auguste Schwiter at the Nineteenth-Century French Studies conference in March, as well as special conference on portraiture hosted by the University of Lisbon in April. This research draws from my dissertation and will contribute to the development of my book project on masculinity and portraiture in post-Imperial France.
