Biography

Biography

Dr. Amanda Alexander is an Associate Professor and Area Coordinator of Art Education as well as Assistant Chair in the Department of Art + Art History at the University of Texas at Arlington. Dr. Alexander teaches five undergraduate courses including a summer visual culture class, works as the liaison between the Art + Art History Department and the College of Education for the art education students, periodically guides independent studies for students, and sits on MFA committees for graduate students in the department. Alexander’s research explores (inter)national and local community-based arts research and learning, sustainable social and culture development, and social justice.

Dr. Alexander’s community-based research incorporates participatory action research, service-learning, autoethnography, co-creation design methods and is grounded in critical theories. She uses these methodologies and theories in connection with sites of cultural and artistic (re)production including schools, museums, community arts organizations, and international cooperative groups. Dr. Alexander is centrally concerned with art education students’ ability to be more civically engaged individuals, see art as a means to make meaning, and have an interdisciplinary, global perspective. Her fifteen years of living, working, and conducting research in Peru with Native artists and conducting local Texas research has led to presentations and publications in journals such as: Studies in Art Education, the International Journal for Education through Art, Journal of Cultural Research in Art Education, the Journal of Social Theory in Art Education, Art Education, the International Journal of the Inclusive Museum, and the Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement.

Dr. Alexander graduated from The Ohio State University (OSU) with a Ph.D. in Art Education and a focus in Arts Administration, Education, and Policy in 2010. Prior to her Ph.D., she received a Masters of Arts degree in Arts Policy and Administration in 2007 from OSU and a Bachelors of Science degree in Business in 2000 from Indiana University-Bloomington. Professionally, Dr. Alexander worked in Marketing for several years, completed Peace Corps service from 2002-2005, worked for both the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission, taught with Upward Bound--a program dedicated to preparing inner city high school kids for college, and taught at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Alexander serves on many interdisciplinary advisory boards at UTA and with statewide, national, and international arts/art education organizations.
