Research Overview

Dr. Bogdan's research topics include the literary theory of Northrop Frye; Plato's banishment of the poets; the relationship between censorship, curriculum, and canon; and the issue of situated reading in what she has coined as "the feeling, power, and location problems" in literary response and philosophical perspectives as well as feminist literary theory as it applies to philosophy of education and pedagogy. Her current focus is on the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of musical experience, especially the ethics of musical intersubjectivity as "embodied dialogism" regarding the relationship between listening to, playing, and performing music. Her article "McLuhan, music, modality: Musical experience from 'extreme occsion' to 'alchemy,' is a multimedia paper that includes audio and visual recorded musical illustrations, as well as her own live piano performance. The article appeared in the inaugural issue of the University of Toronto's first on-line multimedia journal, MediaTropes, www.mediatropes.com. In the summer of 2007 Professor Bogdan was one of two Canadians among 32 international invited participants to attend Tanglewood II: Charting the Future, a Symposium on Music Learning in the 21st Century, held at Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts, and sponsored by the Department of Music, Boston University. In 2008 she was chosen as the George F. Kneller Lecturer to deliver her intellectual autobiography at the Convention of the American Educational Studies Association in Savannah, Georgia, which was published in Educational Studies (2010); a more personal one was the single female entry in the Special Autobiographical Isuue of Paideusis: Journal the Canadian Philosophy of Education Society (2011). Her more recent article, "The Shiver-Shimmer Factor: Musical Spirituality, Emotion, and Education," Philosophy of Music Education Review (2010), explored distinctions between surface and more profound kinds of musical experience.
