TEACHING: Dr. Widdifield teaches Modern and Colonial Mexican art.

RESEARCH: She continues her interdisciplinary work with Dr. Jeffrey M. Banister (School of Geography and Development, and the Southwest Center, UA) on the visual culture of modern water in Mexico City supported by an American Council of Learned Societies Collaborative Research Fellowship. The project follows the impact of Xochimilco and Lerma systems in the art history, history, and urban environment of Mexico through today. She is also a collaborator with Jeff Banister and Dr. Amy C. McCoy (Research Associate, Southwest Center, UA) in a new project: Salt in the Archives: an ironic cultural heritage of salinity in the Mexicali Valley, Baja California. She is also a member of the UA interdisciplinary cultural heritage research group Seminar on the Edge: Expressions of Shared Heritages throughout Bounding Spaces I (a permanent seminar of the SBS-Mexico Initiatives unit). 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.

Proud of you, Taylor Maresca!Taylor Maresca (BFA, '22) is the new morning reporter for WBTW News13 CBS in Myrtle Beach! This past semester Maresca earned her BFA in Musical Theatre, a BA in Communications, and double minored in Public Relations and Journalism. During her time at UArizona she worked for UATV 3 News, wrote for Arizona Daily Wildcat and wrote as a staff writer for Arizona Arts - among many other roles on and off campus.

“Being a journalist, like being an artist, is so fulfilling because everyday I get to tell stories. Stories that impact communities and inspire change." says Maresca. "I’m loving every second of being the morning reporter at News13 and connecting with the lovely community of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (even though it comes with a 2:30 a.m. wake up time 😉)."

Congratulations, Taylor! Bear Down!
