Updated: Apr 14

- 06 January 2016 | TMA

A forum for educators, students (and anyone curious) about the Middle Ages. Resources and teaching materials will be shared by Teresa Russo and her team of students and contributors. Teresa trained as a medievalist and early modernist at The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC and Keble College at Oxford University and receiving a phd from the Centre for Comparative Literature at University of Toronto. Her cultural exchange with the public includes online webinars and art exhibits that link to her course teaching at the university. She has provided public programming and exhibits for youth, seniors, the general public, and for a university audience. Teresa has curated art exhibits at the Wilson Gallery and The Ambassador Peter F. Secchia Building in Washington, D.C, and in Ontario at the Art Gallery of Guelph and the Visa Gallery in Niagara, Canada. She has taught courses in the humanities at The Catholic University of America, American University, the University of Toronto and presented her work at Duke University, Georgetown University, Victoria College (ON), Victoria University (BC), and National Gallery of Art (London) to name a few of her engagements. Her students have won national recognition for their research and awards for their contributions to the studies of migrations and cultural heritage and in digital media for Medieval Studies.
