Chloë Brushwood Rose is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University. Her research examines themes of gender, representation, and object relations in a range of contexts that foreground aesthetic experience and learning, such as digital storytelling and autobiography, visual research methods, and curriculum. Recent projects explore how public art can offer a method for fostering experimental pedagogical communities around complex social issues and how the digital stories of newcomer women function as transitional and transnational spaces that allow for the complex negotiation of multiple selves, times and places.
Her scholarly work has appeared in several journal publications, including Visual Studies, International Journal of Leadership in Education, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, and Gender and Education. She is co-author of the forthcoming book Community-Based Media Pedagogies: Listening in the Commons (Routledge) and of Policy Unplugged: Dis/connections between Technology Policy and Practice in Canadian Schools (McGill-Queens University Press, 2007). Chloё is co-editor of Land|Slide: Possible Futures (PUBLIC Books, 2015), And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families (Insomniac, 2009), and the Lambda short-listed Brazen Femme: Queering Femininity (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2002). She has a series of photographs published in the award-winning book Boys Like Her: Transfictions (Press Gang, 1998) and is curator and author of a DVD compilation of video shorts and study guide for Video Out in Vancouver, entitled Gender Currents (2007). Chloё is a member of the Public Access collective and editorial board, which publishes the journal PUBLIC, and is currently working on a book manuscript, entitled More Than I Can Say: Affect and Aesthetics in Digital Storytelling.
