Art History Department

Janet Panabaker



Thirty years after completing an Honours degree in Medieval Studies, with careers in freelance writing, textile design, and as a visual artist under my belt, I returned to Queen’s University to complete a second degree in Art History, and discovered what I wanted to be when I grew up. I am now interested in consolidating my rather widespread interests in history, art, culture, and travel into a basis for teaching, especially those who have little previous exposure or understanding of the history and importance of human culture.
