Presentation: Patricia Heisser Metoyer

Patricia Heisser Metoyer (Interdisciplinary, Gender, and Ethnic Studies) has written a paper that has been a longitudinal study with Tulane University. The paper, "The Grace of Coincoin: The Role of an African Woman's Spirituality and Its Impact on Creole Culture,” has been selected for presentation at the Dr. Felicia F.  Campbell, Far West Popular and American Culture Association's 32nd  annual conference in February.

She also has been selected as an educator member of the Television Academy Foundation (Emmys). The Television Academy Foundation connects college classrooms to the television industry in expanded faculty seminars: 74 media educators from colleges and universities nationwide were selected to participate in unparalleled access, instruction, and insight from top Hollywood television pros. She was selected because of her work as a former national executive director of diversity and inclusion for the Screen Actors Guild and her work as a  documentary filmmaking fellow at the American Film Institute. Heisser Metoyer has been a part-time instructor at UNLV since 2002.
