Add to calendar

The New World School of the Arts Visual Arts Division will offer students and faculty the opportunity to participate in a new virtual workshop entitled “Artists, Scholars, & Curators: A Lecture Series.” This series of lectures will focus on contemporary artmaking and research practices, expose students to new pedagogical practices and reflect on the current world in which visual artists are anchoring their artistic practice. The lectures will include a Q&A session giving attendees the opportunity to engage with the presenters and delve into the subject matter. Ms. Toman will deliver a series of lecture/training for students and faculty. Lindsay Toman is a doctoral candidate in the department of sociology and a part-time faculty member in the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Department at Wayne State University. She specializes in gender inequality and LGBTQ+ health. Currently, she is writing her dissertation, “Reconnecting Sex to Gender: An Examination of the Medicalization of Transgender Adolescents.” As an applied sociologist, her aim is to bridge the gap between her passion for education and advocacy. Toman has spent much of her time outside of the classroom working towards dismantling heteronormative structures through guest lectures and interactive culturally responsive trainings.
