Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to consider my application packet. I


thought it beneficial to provide information about where I live and work
for some context:

University of North Texas


The University of North Texas (UNT) is located in Denton, a town of about 131,000
people only 36 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, the country’s fourth-largest
metropolitan area. The university is the 24th largest public university in the United
States and has a diverse student population of over 36,000. UNT is a Tier One research
institution that offers 101 bachelor’s, 82 master’s, and 38 doctoral degree programs
http://unt.edu and awards an average of more than 8400 degrees annually.

College of Visual Arts & Design


The College of Visual Arts & Design (CVAD) is home to over 2,100 students
and is one of the largest visual arts colleges in the U.S. The college houses thirteen
programs in three departments–Art Education & Art History, Design, and Studio Art–
http://art.unt.edu and offers BA, BFA, MA, MFA, and PhD degrees.

Department of Art Education & Art History


The Department of Art Eduction & Art History offers six degrees in three programs.
Students may earn undergraduate or graduate degrees in Art Education: Visual Art
Studies or in Art History, and the department offers an undergraduate degree in
Interdiscplinary Art & Design Studies as well as a graduate certificate in Art Museum
Education.

Art Education: Visual Art Studies


The Art Education program at the University of North Texas offers a BFA degree to
prepare preservice undergraduate students for careers as state-certified EC-12 school
art teachers or in other educational roles in community and cultural art programs as
well as to pursue graduate degrees. At the graduate level, three track options are
available for MA students who want to obtain state teaching certification, pursue
careers in museum education, or who want to focus on research through the thesis
option in preparation for doctoral studies. The University of North Texas offers the
first and only PhD program in art education in Texas. Its faculty seek to “promote and
facilitate philosophical, theoretical, socio-political, and methodological inquiry in the
field. We are interested in the development of radical inquiry, meaning inquiry into
commonly held assumptions about education, art and design, art institutions, and
society.”

STATEMENT OF TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I have taught art appreciation, art history, art education and studio courses during the
past ten years with a focus on diversity, feminist/queer theory, and visual culture. My
research and pedagogy are guided by Judith Butler’s theory of gender performativity
in conversation with Julia Serano’s discussion of oppositional sexism. Additionally, my
teaching is influenced by critical pedagogy and methodology. Technology, its theories
and application, and in particular emerging digital technologies (e.g., social media), play a
prominent role in my research and teaching practice.

I teach online art appreciation courses at a local community college; and for three years,
I taught courses in computers in art education and global aesthetics for undergraduate
preservice art educators at the University of North Texas. My goal is for students to
critically examine their lives and experiences and that of their future students, through/
within the intersections of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and other constructed
identities. In my courses we analyze these subjectivities through multiple theoretical
lenses, e.g., feminist epistemology, visual culture, and critical pedagogy. The objective
is to explore histories, past and present, in which non-dominant groups, e.g., LGBTQ,
people of color and different abilities and working-class groups have been and continue
to be devalued. We explore how these groups have been represented, but most
importantly, how they represent themselves in various fields for example, in literature,
film, visual culture, research, and art. My goal is to help students understand and analyze
pressing issues faced by marginalized groups in contemporary times, for example,
poverty, lack of opportunities, violence based on race and sexual orientation, and
intellectual colonialism.

Through these explorations, students are encouraged to become critical thinkers to


analyze how knowledge and power is embedded and affirmed through social institutions
Use the QR code to play in a given society, and how that power is mediated and impacts people’s lives. Moreover,
“Introducing Zoe,” an the goal is to create pedagogical possibilities in which students can negotiate meanings

people’s lives.

technology-intensive real-time research-based collaborative endeavors in a
computer classroom. Whether in-person or online visits to cultural institutions,
students produced scholarly and creative works, such as ekphrastic responses

Research & Publications

RESEARCH STATEMENT

Through the theoretical lenses of Judith Butler’s performativity and Julia


Serano’s oppositional sexism, my research centers around three interrelated
areas of inquiry: art and visual studies education, feminist/transgender studies,
and emergent digital technologies. My dissertation study is a post-qualitative
inquiry centered on LGBQ and transgender issues and concerns and how
emergent digital technologies such as social media platforms, video/photo
sharing websites, virtual reality forums, and gaming can be used to promote
learning about gender variant identities and creating an environment that
promotes self-esteem, student success, and affirming LGBTQ pedagogy and
allyship.

I extend my dissertation research on social media and LGBQ and transgender


studies in “Jumping the Gun: Uncritical Trans Ally Artivism Post-HB2” in Visual
Culture & Gender, “Ontology of the Pee-Cock Gen2 3-in-1,” an article in a
special issue of the International Journal of Education Through Art co-edited by
Adetty Pérez de Miles and Nadine Kalin, “Vagina Dialogues: Un/Mediated, Un/
Censored,” a book chapter in press for publication in Women’s Caucus Lobby
Activism: Feminism + Art (NAEA), co-edited by Karen Keifer-Boyd, Linda Hoeptner
Poling, Sherri Klein, Wanda Knight, & Adetty Pérez de Miles, “Which Way Did
He Go, George?: A Phenomenology of Public Bathroom Use,” a book chapter
published in 2017 in Pedagogies in the Flesh: Case Studies on the Embodiment
of Sociocultural Differences in Education (Palgrave MacMillan), co-edited by
Sarah Travis, Tyson Lewis, and Amelia Kraehe. In addition, I have presented my
research at the International Congress for Qualitative Inquiry (IQCI) in Urbana
Champaign-Illinois, the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA)
Congress in Helsinki, Finland, the National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA)
Conference in Montreal, Canada, and I co-presented a Super Session, Trans Ally
101: Supporting Change for Student Success, with my dissertation advisor at the
2017 National Art Education Association (NAEA) Convention in New York.

My future research agenda includes further investigating possibilities conceived


through post-qualitative modes of inquiry in which the blurring of binary
demarcations and living in tensions are generative of new ways of knowing and
being. I am interested in what the blended spaces of online/offline, real/virtual,
and traditional/emergent as experienced through various digital technologies tell
us about the needs and desires of those who create and exist within and through
them and how art education might address these needs and desires.
