SPACE Conference 2016

I will be speaking at the 2016 SPACE Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on June 18th. This incredibly important conference, dedicated to part-time, contingent faculty, is hosted by Kennesaw  State University. I’ll be speaking about how the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is being subsumed by Tufts University, and the concurrent impact that has had on its contingent faculty members. By using my experience as a case study, I will explore questions relevant to all contingent educators: how do we stay present and focused for our students in the face of the stress contingency creates? how can we be to be loyal to institutions that cannot promise us a future? and what does this means for today’s students and the fate of the higher educational system as a whole?

Art New England: The Shifting Meaning of Pictures

I’m thrilled and honored to have had the opportunity to write an article for the current issue of Art New England. The Shifting Meaning of Pictures explores five contemporary New England artists (Lindsey Beal, Matthew Gamber, Jonathan Gitelson, Jodie Goodnough, Deb Todd Wheeler) that work in hybrid photographic processes, challenging learnt assumptions about the indexical relationship of photographic images and their real-world counterparts.

I’m thrilled to be back at Emerson College to teach History of photography: 1970’s to Present this semester. I’ll also be at Tufts University this spring, managing the darkroom and teaching Photo Foundation and Intermediate to Advanced Photography.
