Susan Karnet

Visiting Instructor


Susan has been teaching art history for twenty years but she is also a visual artist whose work has been exhibited in Chelsea, LES, the East Village, 57th Street, Brooklyn, Europe, and Africa; her artwork has been reviewed in “The New York Times”, “The Egyptian Gazette”, and “The Brooklyn Eagle”. In her research, she is currently working on a long essay called “The Challenges of Teaching Art History”, where she discusses the pedagogical theories of John Amos Comenius in his “The Great Didactic” and Martin Luther’s writings on the teaching of Latin in relation to contemporary art education. Extracts from this work posted on were cited in spring 2017 in a lecture by a graduate student of sociology at the University of Bologna in Italy. At Pratt, Susan teaches the Survey of Western and non-Western Art and the Survey of Modern Art. She continues to expand her scope in academics and the arts and is now also teaching the history of film.
