Beth Link's research applies critical race theory and critical whiteness to visual art curriculum, enactment, and teacher-identity formation to understand the complex ways teachers tell stories through art objects.

She received a doctorate in curriculum and instruction specializing in cultural studies at the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas, where she also earned an M.A. in art education. Link taught elementary art in Denver and Austin and has facilitated numerous arts-integrated professional development sessions for K-12 teachers. She is co-authoring a book on transformative professional learning in arts integration and how teachers tell stories through art objects. Link's work further explores anti-oppressive pedagogy through arts integration and contemporary art counterstories.
