Jenevieve DeLosSantos is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Art History and the Director of Special Pedagogic Projects in the Office of Undergraduate Education, School of Arts and Sciences. She earned her Ph.D. in Art History from Rutgers University in 2015 with a focus in 19th century American orientalism. Prior to returning to Rutgers in 2016, she was the Coordinator of Academic Programs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where she also trained in museum education through the TIME (Teaching in Museum Education) program. Currently, she teaches “Women and Art” and the second half of the survey course, “Introduction to Art History: Art from 1450 to the Present” and has taught Byrne Seminars and courses on Impressionism and Modern Art in the past. She also advises the Art History Student Advisory Board, which brings together majors and minors to build to campus community and deeply engage with art history as a discipline, and serves on the department’s undergraduate curriculum committee.
For the Office of Undergraduate Education, she works on projects, including running the Interdisciplinary Research Teams, managing dual enrollment programming with New Jersey high schools, coordinating the Voices of Diversity: Rutgers Student Stories panels, and hosting “Tea and Teaching with Jenevieve,” a popular weekly web series on interdisciplinary pedagogy. She is interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning in art history, and her current research explores inclusive and equitable teaching practices, particularly as they relate to the teaching of visual culture and language equity. Some of this can be seen in her co-edited volume of Art Journal Open that explores trauma-informed pedagogy as it relates to the teaching of visual culture and in the forthcoming volume with Rutgers University Press, “Poetries –Politics: A Multi-Lingual Project.” She also serves on the College Art Association’s Education Committee.
