Art history professor Lesley Shipley was recently featured in a segment for The Academic Minute, which aired on NPR.
In her interview, Shipley answered the question, “How do we interact with art” and “How can artists contribute to public discourse?” At Randolph, Shipley teaches 19th-Century European Art, Modern European Art, American Art and Architecture, and the second half of the survey of Western Art. She also plans to teach special topics such as Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Contemporary Art, Art and Activism since 1960, and African American Art from Colonialism to the Present.
The Academic Minute features researchers from colleges and universities around the world, keeping listeners abreast of what’s new and exciting in the academy and of all the ways academic research contributes to solving the world’s toughest problems and to serving the public good. Production support for The Academic Minute comes from The Association of American Colleges & Universities.
