Jill Elizabeth Blondin, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Art History

Department of Art and Art History

UT Tyler

My job is to help students develop the background and the tools to examine the historical and cultural issues present in the works of art we study, and then to take those skills and apply them to the world around them. Sometimes this journey takes us around the world and sometimes down the highway to a museum. In the end, I will have succeeded when my students understand that the world is much bigger than they imagined and that they have all they need to walk fearlessly into it and to make their own contribution.
