Aralee Strange Lecture: Shirley Brice Heath

Dates : 2/22/18 - 2/22/18
Georgia Museum of Art
90 Carlton Street
Athens, GA 30601


Dr. Heath holds the Marjorie Bailey Professorship in English and Dramatic Literature and is a professor of linguistics, emerita, at Stanford University. She is also the director of research for the Public Theater in New York City. Her work focuses on the ways in which long-term engagement with art can drive the linguistic and cognitive development of adolescents. Her talk, titled "The Arts as Brick and Mortar of Community Building," will draw from national and international contexts in which the arts are building community togetherness, communication and, sometimes, solace and comfort. This program is made possible by the Aralee Strange Fund for Art and Poetry.
