Methodological Colloquium Announcement 2016Sent on behalf  of Dr. Gugiu:


Hi everyone. With fall fast approaching it is time to plan for this year’s Methodological Colloquium series. The last 2.5 years have been very successful. In total, there have been 50 presentations, which were attended by a total of over 200 distinct faculty, students, and staff. Let’s keep the ball rolling.


I am soliciting presenters for the 26 time slots available for this year’s colloquium series (see attached schedule). I am looking for faculty, graduate students, and research scientists who would like to present on a methodological topic of their interest. I am interested in presentations that focus on either qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods. Any innovative methods that you or your colleagues are working on would be of great interest to our group of attendees. If you are interested in presenting or would like to suggest the name of a presenter, please email Dr. Cristian Gugiu (gugiu.2@osu.edu).Methodological Colloquium Announcement 2016

AE 7767: Critical Analysis of Multicultural Art Education–New AUTUMN 2016 Course

This course will guide students through an exploration of theories as they relate to critical multiculturalism. Some theories include, but are not limited to critical theory, critical race theory, and postcolonial theory. Together, we will discuss literature, contemporary art (performance and visual), visual culture and film that investigate issues around topics such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation and others. We will identify and conceptualize the intersections of these categories and their impact on economy, politics and justice. Students will explore the implications of the aforementioned theories and sociocultural intersections as they relate to the world of Art, including Arts education, Arts management and Arts policy.  This course goes beyond art education and can be appreciated by students in varying fields.
