I am the Digital Scholarship and Visual Resources Librarian and Arts Subject Specialist at Connecticut College. I work in the Instructional Technology department to promote innovative integration of technology and digital pedagogy into the undergraduate curriculum, while also supporting the collection development, bibliographic instruction, and reference for the departments of Art, Art History, Architectural Studies, Dance, Museum Studies, and the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology. I am leading efforts to facilitate digital scholarship initiatives on campus, building the Digital Scholarship & Curriculum Center’s program of services and supporting the Diane Y. Williams ’59 Visualization Wall.
I also teach an art history course, “Forgery, Plunder, Destruction: Art Crimes & the Value of Art,” and serve as an academic advisor in Connecticut College’s first-year-seminar program.
Meanwhile, I am pursuing a PhD in Art History at the University of Maryland. My dissertation presents the birth of Czech modern design through the lens of one group of artists, the Artěl Cooperative (1908-1934), whose interests in both national traditions and international modern styles led them to create a distinctively Czech modern visual identity.
