Jessie Beier

about the author

Jessie Beier is a teacher, artist, and PhD student based in Edmonton, Alberta. Beier’s interests in both visual and sonic ecologies have led to a research-creation practice that works to think pedagogy, in its many forms, as a power for overturning cliché and dismantling common-sense habits of thinking. Beier has exhibited artistic work and presented academic research both locally and nationally, and has written for several publications including the recent (2016) edited books Sonic Thinking: A Media Philosophical Approach (Bloomsbury), What is Art Education? Essays after Deleuze and Guattari (Palgrave Macmillan), and The Precarious Future of Education: Risk and Uncertainty in Ecology, Curriculum, Learning, and Technology (Palgrave Macmillan).
