Widdifield teaches Modern and Colonial Mexican Art. She is currently working with Dr. Jeffrey M. Banister (School of Geography and Development, and the Southwest Center, UA) on the visual culture of modern water in Mexico City — particularly the Xochimilco Potable Supply network. Supported by an American Council of Learned Societies Collaborative Research Fellowship, the project follows the impact of this system in the urban environment, history, and art history of Mexico through today. She is also researching the relationship between art and medicine in 19th century Mexico. Widdifield has a strong interest in digital art history and how technologies shape knowledge; she also supports the integration of new technologies in the classroom as a means to organize and present research. Her previous projects have focused on history, gender, landscape, nationalism, and institutions in 19th and early 20th century Mexico.
