I cannot believe it has been a year since I last blogged on this site. My previous post on my dissertation was a massive clue as to why I haven’t been writing my blog. I am happy to report that I finished my dissertation and defended it on April 1st, or April Fool’s Day. I selected that date and I liked the irony of becoming a doctor on April Fool’s Day. They say, the more you know, the more you know you don’t know. That is very true in my doctorate experience. I started the program feeling like an underdog with all these much smarter, better people, and fears and imposter syndrome ran rampant in my head. Now that I am finished I look at all the things I can still learn, still want to learn and try from that to hone in on my research agenda.
I am still interested in Activist Art or Protest Art, so stay tuned for more posts on those things, I also teach future art teachers so check out my other blog to see what is happening in my Art Education class each week.
Thanks for checking back on this page, and for keeping me accountable.
Much love, Dr. Woodard!
This blog chronicles my research in activist art and my life as a woman in academia.
