Faculty Bio

Kristin Moss is a scholar, educator, and curator whose work focuses on art, identity, and social change. Her work engages different communities and explores ways that visual culture contributes to discourses of cultural identity, offers creative conceptualizations of contemporary society, and can serve as a model for democratic participation and citizenship. Her research highlights public art, including murals and street art, and their role in promoting dialogues of peace and social justice in diverse communities. Her interdisciplinary approach integrates theory from intercultural communication, visual culture studies, critical/cultural studies, and art history. Dr. Moss has published research on intercultural dialogue and mural art in national journals, served as Curator/Director of CSUSM’s Off Campus Gallery, and received the President’s Faculty Award for Teaching Innovation and Excellence. She holds MA and PHD degrees in International & Intercultural Communication from the University of Denver, and a BA in Art/Art History from Kalamazoo College.
