Widdifield has a strong interest in digital art history and how technologies shape knowledge; she also supports the integration of new technologies in the classroom as a means to organize and present research. Her previous projects have focused on history, gender, landscape, nationalism, and institutions in 19th and early 20th century Mexico.
