Description

Dr. Anniina Suominen earned her BA/MA from the University of Arts and Design Helsinki (1999) and her Ph.D. in Art Education from The Ohio State University (2003) and is currently an Associate Professor of Art Pedagogy at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Dr. Suominen shares her time between U.S. and Finland navigating and negotiating their landscapes, socio-cultural traditions, and institutional differences. Her attachment to both of these places has shaped her work. Her research and teaching focus on advancing equity and social justice through the arts as well as sensuous epistemologies and pedagogies. The themes she works with are knowing/learning in relation to place and others (including diverse environments and & animals), democracy and diversity in education, curricula and pedagogy that are sensitive to gender diversity, immigrant rights and human rights, and visual/artistic knowing, learning, and research.
