Marisa Morán Jahn

Teaching & Pedagogy

Jahn regularly teaches art, creative technology, design justice, civic art, and pedagogy at MIT (her alma mater), Teachers College at Columbia University, and The New School where she is an Assistant Professor. She regularly lectures at museums, art schools, law schools, journalism programs, and universities such as Harvard University, UC Berkeley Law School, National Fine Art Museum of Taiwan, Museum of Modern Art, and more.

Drawing upon her experience teaching art to thousands of k-12 youth in-school and after-school, Jahn has created award-winning curriculum and interactive media that empower low-wage workers, immigrants, women, and youth. Clients/commissions include civic and governmental institutions such as The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs in New York City; museums such as The American Museum of Natural History, Cantor Stanford University Art Museum, New York Hall of Science, Peabody Essex Museum; youth development and youth media organizations such as Horizons for Homeless Children, Mozilla Foundation; filmmakers and impact producers such as SALTY Features (Yael Melamede), SHINE Global, Oxford Films, and grassroots organizations such as the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Centro de los Derechos del Migrante.
