Megan Flattley is a joint PhD candidate in Art History and Latin American Studies and her research centers on mural making and the intersection of art with social and political movements. Her dissertation research analyzes the work of Mexican muralist Diego Rivera and his connections to an international circle of artists working for revolutionary change in the early twentieth century. Megan has tied this work to the study of contemporary mural making practices and the role that art has to play in social struggle today.

Between 2018 and 2020, Megan was a Mellon fellow for Community-Engaged Scholarship. During this fellowship, Megan worked as the curatorial research assistant for the award-winning Newcomb Art Museum exhibition, Per(sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana.

At Tulane, Megan has taught Service Learning courses in the Latin American Studies department, as well as courses in Art History. Megan earned her undergraduate degree in Art History from the University of Michigan, and is a proud native Michigander. Currently she is a Graduate Assistant in Research and Scholarship at the Taylor Center, where she is excited to help promote Taylor’s mission to create a more just and equitable world.
