Graduate Teaching Assistant
307 Garland Hall
Rebecca Teague is a graduate teaching assistant in art history. Her major concentration is Italian Renaissance art and her minor is contemporary art. She said, “I’m interested in the ways in which Renaissance methods, theories and conceptions of art continue to shape and influence the contemporary art world which so badly wants to pry itself from the past.” Teague was awarded a mid-year Academic Merit Scholarship from the Joseph and Carolyn Bolt Endowed Support Fund in Art History in spring, 2017. Teague recently presented her research paper, “Nanni di Banco’s St Luke as a Statement Against Albizzi Control,” at the 22nd Annual Graduate Student Symposium in Art History. She won second place for the Harrison Award for Excellence in Research – Graduate Paper Presentation for her paper.
During the summer of 2017, she interned as a Museum Collections Volunteer at the Alabama State Department of Archives and History in Montgomery. Teague researched the provenance or history of individuals depicted in portraits in the ADAH collections in relation to state history, developed labels for the portraits and created interactive children’s lesson plans for the portraits.
Teague received her BS in psychology from Auburn University at Montgomery where she graduated summa cum laude. Teague was awarded the Continuing Merit Scholarship, the Vanity Tag Scholarship and a half tuition scholarship from AUM’s Department of Fine Arts. She is a member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and the National Society of Leadership and Success.
