My formal teaching for the Department of Art is confined to a graduate seminar I share with Ann Hamilton. While our specific pedagogical methods and intentions may change radically over time, the topics we consider within each Living Culture Initiative Seminar typically include: 

Why look at art and why talk about it?

How is the university a place for thinking?

How is making a form of thinking?

How can thinking give pause for reflection?

How might we move from reflection (self absorption) into conversation, or, 

How do we make our thinking visible and sociable?

Seminar Visitors Series events generate interdisciplinary conversations and projects across the university, as well as throughout Columbus and the surrounding region.
