Not able to travel to an in person location but still would like to hear Dr. Jennifer Salahub’s Talk? Then Click here for the Zoom Link for this presentation.
Our Featured Speaker:
Dr. Salahub is a professor emerita from the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly ACA, ACAD) where she taught art, textile, and craft history for almost twenty years. She has an MFA in Canadian art history from Concordia University in Montreal and a PhD in Design history from the Royal College of Art in London, England. She continues to do research, publish, and lecture internationally and has been on the board of the Alberta Craft Council since 2010. Jennifer is indeed an academic but the only thing of import tonight is that her research is defined by craft, by community, and by enthusiasm. [And lest you think this might be a boring academic talk – she is a story teller and a maker – and grew up hearing stories about Adelaide Hoodless and is willing to bet she has as much fabric hidden under the bed as any of us.]
