James Haywood Rolling Jr.

earned his EdD and EdM in Art Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, and his MFA in studio arts research from Syracuse University in the USA. Dr. Rolling’s scholarship has focused on poststructuralist and poetic interrogations of the certainties and norms of modernity in an attempt to reinterpret research practices and paradigms most often taken for granted. His research practice has constituted itself as an arts-based examination of the archaeologies underlying the (re)constitution of stigmatized social identities from prior (mis)interpretations ensconced in Western visual culture. Dr. Rolling is an Associate Professor and the Chair of Art Education at Syracuse University.
