Mirna Lekić



On October 19th, along with three of my outstanding CUNY colleagues, I received the 2018 Henry Wasser Award. I am grateful to the CUNY Academy for recognizing my scholarly and creative activities, and for highlighting the arts and the work being done at our community colleges.


I recently co-authored two chapters for Humanistic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines: Approaches to Mass Atrocity Education in the Community College Context, edited by Amy E. Traver and Dan Leshem. (New York: Palgrave Macmillan).

This volume presents insights from five years of intensive Holocaust, genocide, and mass atrocity education at Queensborough Community College (QCC) of the City University of New York (CUNY) to offer four approaches—Arts-Based, Textual, Outcomes-Based, and Social Justice—to designing innovative, integrative, and differentiated pedagogies for today's college students. The authors cover the theoretical foundations of each approach, and include faculty reflections on the programs, instructional strategies, and student reactions that brought the approaches to life across the disciplines.

I am thrilled and honored to be selected as one of the winners of the 2017-18 American Prize in Piano Performance!
