Redefining Controversy and Outness: Honest Queer Art Education in the South

Redefining Controversy and Outness: Honest Queer Art Education in the South <p>Abstract:</p><p>In this paper, I discuss my experience as an out lesbian art professor and offer my view into the future of queer art education. After a year of teaching at a southeastern private Christian university, I’ve developed strategies for integrating queer art history even in the least accepting of institutions. Throughout the narrative, I use three of my own pieces to illustrate the intersection of my art practice, my pedagogy, and my experience as a queer womxn. Ultimately, by framing queer art history as a crucial component of art history, I argue that it is our job as educators to teach our students rich, complicated histories of art so they are able to place themselves as artists but also as human beings within that history.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Visual Arts Research University of Illinois Press
