Aiming to highlight a plethora of alumni, this show will feature the wonderfully broad range of artists and designers that PNCA has graduated over the years. We are excited to host Unlimited in PNCA’s light filled Atrium this year where the open architecture of the space will frame alumni artwork in exciting new ways.

In this interactive workshop, Z Nicolazzo will discuss the always already embodied nature of critical pedagogy for people with marginalized identities. She will engage participants in self-reflection and group-based activities to explore what it means to “show up” with marginalized identities in classroom spaces, how we are met with student resistance, and the possibilities for meeting such resistance to navigate the academy.
Dr. Z Nicolazzo is Assistant Professor of Trans* Studies in Education in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona. Her research focuses on mapping gender across college contexts, with a particular emphasis on affirmative and resilience-based research alongside trans* students. She has published her scholarship in a variety of inter/national publication venues, and her first book, Trans* in College: Transgender Students’ Strategies for Navigating Campus Life and the Institutional Politics of Inclusion, was awarded the 2017 Publication of the Year from AERA’s Division J.
