Keep Learning with Laura
I hold a Ph.D in art history from Yale University and have taught college students in the U.S. and in Italy. I believe art history is the most interesting subject in the world, but sometimes we academics make it dull and inaccessible. My goal is to bring the excitement and wonderment of art history to a broad audience. Join me!
I have taught traditional introductory and upper-level art history courses, specially designed seminars on authentic arts and design, as well as workshops on writing in the humanities. I have taught at Trinity College in Rome, as well as at Northeastern University, Merrimack College, St. Joseph College, and the College of Coastal Georgia.
I am so excited about new opportunities to bring art history to students and other audiences who may not have been reached before. TED-Ed lessons remind me of the old Schoolhouse Rock segments I used to watch on TV as a kid. They are short, fun, and I won’t lie: It is oh-so-challenging to encapsulate those “ideas worth sharing” in just a few minutes! You can find samples of my work for TED-Ed here and here.
