Academic Instagram 101: Workshop with Laura Beltrán-Rubio

November 5, 2020 | 4–5 PM | Virtual

Having a strong digital presence can support our scholarly work and research in unprecedented ways. With its integration of image and text, Instagram is a particularly effective tool in building this digital presence: it helps us showcase our academic work and build an intellectual community that goes beyond our institutions. In this workshop, Laura Beltrán-Rubio (@laurabelru) will guide us through the process of creating a strong Instagram profile and will offer some tips on how to communicate with peers, students, and a general audience on Instagram.

Laura Beltrán-Rubio specializes in the history of art and fashion in the early modern Spanish World. She is a doctoral candidate at William & Mary and received her MA in Fashion Studies from Parsons School of Design. Her dissertation explores the adoption and adaptation of European fashions, their fusion with local Indigenous elements of dress, and their representation in portraits and pictures of types in the Viceroyalty of New Granada. More broadly, her research explores the construction of identity through fashion in Europe and Latin America. She is currently a Graduate Assistant at the Equality Lab, Researcher at The Fashion and Race Database, and co-director of Culturas de Moda.
