I lecture and write on various topics in contemporary art, including intermedia art, theory and criticism, and women artists.  I currently write about new media/new genre art, the home, and contemporary American feminist art.  I particularly focus on Pattern and Decoration, an American art movement of the 1970s-1980s.  I teach via eLearning for my college.

I teach art history and American studies to undergrad non-majors at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY, where I am helping to launch an Interdisciplinary Studies department and major. Courses I teach include American Art, Art of Social Change, Commemorative Practices, Public Art, and Art in NYC. I co-edit the journal Public Art Dialogue with Cameron Cartiere (Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver). Sierra Rooney (University of Wisconsin-La Crosse) and I are co-editing a volume with Harriet Senie (CUNY City College & Graduate Center), Teachable Monuments: Using Public Art to Spark Dialogue and Confront Controversies (Bloomsbury). I have published on the domestic display of FDR portraits in photographs by Gordon Parks and Jack Delano (Winterthur Portfolio) and on World War I memorial sculpture in the United States in a book, Sculpting Doughboys (published 2013 by Ashgate and available as an e-book from Routledge) and in the journals American Art, Woman’s Art Journal, and Public Art Dialogue. My research and teaching interests include public art, art of social change, and the display of presidential portraits.

Dr. Sarah Beetham is an assistant professor of art history at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, specializing in American art and particularly the monuments erected to citizen soldiers after the Civil War. She holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in art history from the University of Delaware and a B.A. in art history and English from Rutgers University.

Dr. Beetham has published work on Civil War monuments and art history pedagogy in Public Art Dialogue, Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art, Nierika: Revista de Estudios de Arte, and Common-Place.

As Curator of Academic Programs at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, I collaborate with faculty across all units of the university to foster interdisciplinary programs and to develop creative ways to join the museum with curricular activities. As Director of Education, I lead a team in developing engaging learning opportunities for exhibitions and in creating “always-on” educational experiences for students and community members, whenever they come to the museum. Our focus extends from visitor experience in the museum to outreach and partnerships that serve community needs. In addition to research and lectures on museum education,  my teaching and research in American art have focused on turn-of-the-(twentieth)-century American artists abroad, American illustration and issues of race and whiteness.

I am presently writing about Melville’s influence on American art. I was trained in Shakespeare and medieval studies at the University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1970) and have taught at both the university and independent school level. I directed the first undergraduate foreign study program from the University of Florida, Florida Abroad at Utrecht, and set up the New Cultural Experiences Program for Carroll College. My interests in interdisciplinary and foreign study were formed as an undergraduate at Earlham College.
