He delivered the John W. and Maria T. Kluge Distinguished Lecture in Arts and Humanities, titled Picturing Ourselves/Creating a Visual History. He also guest lectured to photography students in the McIntire Department of Art and at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) course at the Kluge-Ruhe Collection. Maynard was also interviewed by history professor John Edwin Mason.
