Penn State SoVA Art Education Alum Publishes Article

Kevin Slivka

Kevin Slivka’s (’13 Ph.D. Art Education) article, "Methodological Considerations for Intercultural Arts Research: Phenomenology, Ethnography, Collage Narrative, and Ethics,” was recently published in the Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education journal.

The Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education journal publishes essays, scholarly articles, and images of art about the teaching, theory, and praxis of visual art annually. These works come from doctoral students in art education from top programs around the globe and are vetted through a presentation at the National Art Education Association’s annual conference.

Slivka’s research investigates how art functions as a living practice in relation to culture, ethics, and communication in Ojibwe communities. “Kevin’s research has the potential to contribute to research on diversity in art education. It has been a pleasure to work and learn alongside him,” said Slivka’s faculty mentor, Kim Powell, professor of art education.
