Farrukh Rafiq, PhD
Assistant Professor, Limited Term Appointment, Art History
I am an art historian and art educator originally from Mississauga, Ontario. Since receiving my doctorate at Queen's University in art history, I have been teaching art history courses at the University of Toronto. My recent focus in art history has been on decolonization efforts and experimenting with inclusive pedagogies in my classrooms. My teaching methodology focuses on amalgamating a multitude of interdisciplinary lenses to provide learners with a varied and comprehensive approach to art. I have also developed and taught a variety of visual and digital arts courses at a number of art galleries and museums in the Greater Toronto Area. I utilized these efforts to reimagine and rebuild education departments at institutions such as the Gardiner Museum and the Art Gallery of Burlington.
