History of Art and Design department chair Steven Zucker recently participated in  “Open Conversations–Open Learning”, an Online Speaker Series presented in Marlborough, MA through the University of Massachusetts.

Dr. Zucker attended the event with Smarthistory co-founder Dr. Beth Harris to showcase Smarthistory.org, a free and open online art history textbook focused on presenting material in an informal, conversational way. Dr. Harris and Dr. Zucker began Smarthistory together as a blog in 2005, and it has since expanded to a multi-media website that innovates the way that art history students interact with their textbook material.
