THIBODAUX, La. — UT Arlington photography professor Kenda North was selected earlier this month as the Honored Educator for the South Central Region Society for Photographic Education conference.
North presented a keynote lecture at the event, which was hosted by Nicholls State University, addressing current issues facing higher education in the liberal arts and the fine arts. The lecture addressed undergraduate and graduate students pursuing university positions, as well as junior level faculty. She also presented a visual chronology of her photographic work over the past 30 years.
The regional conference, “Crosswinds,” included photography teachers and students from a seven state area. North has been a board member for SPE at the national level as well as the western and south central region.
According to the group’s website, “the Society for Photographic Education is a non-profit membership organization that provides a forum for the discussion of photography-related media as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. Through its interdisciplinary programs, services and publications, the society seeks to promote a broader understanding of the medium in all its forms, and to foster the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship and criticism.”
