Lunchtime Looks are short presentations and discussions led by speakers with a variety of interdisciplinary backgrounds, who offer unique perspectives on the Art Museum's exhibitions and collections.


Betsy Osborne is a Service Assistant Professor for the School of Education and the Department of History, serving as the program coordinator for the Secondary Social Studies program. Prior to this appointment, Osborne spent over a decade teaching social studies in a Virginia middle school classroom. Within academia, her research centers on challenging established norms and disrupting entrenched narratives in social studies education. Her primary aim is to critically assess and deconstruct the pervasive influence of whiteness within the domain of social studies education.


Drawing on her expertise as a historian and social studies educator, Betsy’s talk will explore the significant historical shifts that took place in the 1960’s and 1970s as a lens for contextualizing the artwork in "Where the Wind Blows: Selections from the Collection, 1960-1975."


This is an in-person event. A recording will be posted to the Art Museum’s YouTube playlist in the days following the talk. "Where the Wind Blows: Selections from the Collection, 1960-1975" is on view at the Art Museum of WVU from January 19 – May 5, 2024.
