“Let’s Talk About”…Symposium – The Meaning of Cultural Competence

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Cultural competence has been defined as the ability to understand, appreciate and interact with people from cultures or belief systems different from one’s own. But what does that actually mean? Join in a dialogue about what “cultural competence” looks like in the present day with Dr. Frank C. Martin II, associate professor of art history and art theory at South Carolina State University.

Dr. Martin is the retired director of The I.P. Stanback Museum & Planetarium, located on the campus of South Carolina State University. He is a graduate of Yale University and the City University of New York, Hunter College, with additional study in contemporary art and art theory at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy with a specialization in axiology and the history of aesthetics from the University of South Carolina. A former lecturer and associate manager of the Office of Education Services for the Uris Education Center of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Martin has served as an academic advisor for the PBS documentary “Shared History” and has worked as a contributing critic in the fine arts for Charleston’s The Post and Courier.
