L. Martina Young, Ph.D., ’78

L. Martina Young, Ph.D., ’78 checks in: “I’ve returned from Australia to resume my teaching schedule as faculty member in Humanities at the University of Nevada, Reno. I continue to curate my newest performance work called Black Swans, an opera poem. It’s being hosted and presented by the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, the capital of Australia. In celebration of the museum’s newest gallery in 2021, with special attention to the emblematic bird, the black swan, Black Swans, an opera poem will be performed with Australian artists, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal.”
