assoc professor, art history, Providence College
Joan Branham is an associate professor of Art History and the department chair of Art and Art History. She is interested by the relationship of "the sacred" and "the profane" in architecture. Branham is the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence. She believes that it is important to recognize the multiple dimensions of faculty members, especially in their roles as teachers and scholars. The CTE is thus committed to supporting faculty teaching and research, not simply as two separate entities, but as mutually reinforcing elements within the lives of faculty members.
