Plymouth State University
Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Art History

Dr. Sarah Parrish, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Art History at Plymouth State University, teaches all areas of art history and museum studies. She strives to empower students with close looking, visual analysis, and communication skills that can be deployed in a range of interdisciplinary contexts. Because technology conditions the production and reception of imagery in contemporary visual culture, digital literacy is essential for students of art history. As an OER Ambassador, Dr. Parrish aims to launch an open-access contemporary art textbook that enables users to create personalized narratives. The flexible, democratic structure of the text will parallel the dispersed, nonlinear nature of contemporary art itself.
