Dr. Natasha Murray-Everett is an assistant professor in WVU’s department of Curriculum & Instruction. She teaches courses in Social Studies Education and has brought many of her students, who are pre-service teachers, to the Art Museum in the past to discuss ways to integrate art into the social studies curriculum. She is passionate about encouraging these pre-service teachers to engage in social justice and anti-racist practices in the K-6 classroom. Many pieces in the Art Museum’s current exhibition, "Collective Insight: The Harvey & Jennifer Peyton Collection" focus on issues of social justice relevant to Dr. Murray-Everett’s teaching and research. In her talk she will discuss how art can be used to incite critical dialogue around issues of race and justice in an educational setting.
All are invited to bring a brown-bag lunch to the Museum Education Center Grand Hall to converse with Dr. Fones-Wolf, Museum staff and fellow museum-goers as they enjoy their midday meal. The presentation will commence at 12:20 in the McGee gallery of the Art Museum of WVU.
Free and open to the public. Lunchtime Looks with Dr. Natasha Murray-Everett
