Student - Ph.D. Student

Megan Flattley is a student in the joint Art History and Latin American Studies Ph.D. program. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan where she worked on Socialist Realism and other forms of politically motivated visual art. From 2013-2015 Megan worked for a local community-based nonprofit where she primarily worked with children’s literacy and arts education. Her current research interests center on murals in Latin America as discursive spaces of contention and collaboration between marginalized peoples and their governments. She is interested specifically in the legacy of the aesthetic of the Mexican School in the later part of the 20th century in Mexico and Latin America, as well as the United States.
