Virginia Raguin, Professor of Art History


My courses try to include experiences where students get to work with real objects, especially buildings. In Structures of Faith, for example, as a final project, students work in teams surveying a building in the Worcester area (or another site of their choice). Cooperative projects are encouraged. In one course students helped produce a 30 minute video Margery Kempe: A Medieval Woman. In a seminar, six students produced a book on a 19th-century Boston artist distributed to regional libraries, including Boston Public Library and the American Antiquarian Society. I am very interested in encouraging efforts to understand, record, and preserve historic buildings.
