      Biographical Information

      Originally from Thessaloniki, Greece, Stefanos Milkidis is an interdisciplinary scholar who is committed to exploring the interrelations between visual culture studies, American studies, and creative production. Working across different theoretical frameworks, he investigates the intricate co-productions of space and identity in urban and suburban environments. As an artist, he has produced visual forms of communication that emphasized the potential of art as critique and intervention, and exhibited in alternative, commercial, and not-for-profit art venues in Europe and the United States. With this artistic license he addresses current questions of gender and sexuality, identity politics and civil rights that are at the heart of many cultural, political, and liberation movements.

      Teaching Philosophy

      I view art education as a vehicle for empowerment and personal development. Drawing on my training, I have developed not only a set of skills for understanding, critiquing, and challenging society, but have also discovered my own voice and my ability to create change in the world around me. I credit much of my personal transformation to the professors who have challenged my way of thinking, who treated me as a valued member of the classroom community, and who introduced me to a world I had not previously known. These lessons have strongly influenced my own teaching philosophy, and the role I play in academia as an educator and mentor.

      I believe in a flexible and interactive approach to teaching and learning. To provide an education that is unmistakably useful to my students’ efforts to discover their own voice, I incorporate course materials that encourage them to become critical readers, thinkers, and makers. My goal is to help them grow by stimulating in them an intellectual interaction with academic texts, films, various visual resources, and/or museum visits. I believe this approach is imperative in order to consider art within its larger social, historical, and conceptual contexts. Ultimately, I want my students to walk away from my courses with tools that will help them to critically engage with the world around them and to discover their own goals and interests. I continuously strive to improve my pedagogy to mentally challenge students, to help them develop their own unique perspectives and thoughts, and to create a classroom environment of intellectual rigor where every voice is valued and respected.

      Roberta Griffin retired in August 2006, after twenty-three years as an art faculty member and Director of Galleries. She arrived at KSU in 1983 during a time of transition, when the institution had moved from a junior college to a prominent four-year undergraduate school. There were 4,400 students and no art major. Ms. Griffin worked to develop the first art major and introduced many new art courses that contributed to the growth of the undergraduate visual arts program. She has curated more than 100 major exhibitions, many with award winning catalogues and educational brochures. The KSU gallery program regularly receives favorable coverage in regional publications.

      She was one of the founders of the country study program, "The Year of........" in 1984 and organized a major art exhibition each year that focused on the art of the country selected, often teaching new art history courses for that particular country as well. She taught in "Summer Studies Abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico" for five years and has curated many Latin American exhibitions. Ms. Griffin co-founded the Latin American Art Circle with a group of Latino artists in 2001 and organized LAAC exhibitions in the Sturgis Library Gallery in 2002, 2004, and 2006.

      As gallery director, she was responsible for the donation of over 200 contemporary works of art valued at two million dollars to the university's permanent collection, and created a master plan for a sculpture park and gardens on campus through the ongoing project, "Sculpture on the Grounds." The university currently displays twenty-six works outdoors, with more under development. She worked with the KSU Foundation, architects, and the College of the Arts to develop plans for the new art museum. The first phase of the museum, adjacent to the performance hall, will open next year. In retirement, she continues to work with community arts patrons to increase KSU's permanent art collection and raise awareness of the high quality of the visual arts program.

      "What I enjoy most about the art program here at KSU is its ability to grow, the exciting students, dedicated faculty, and the university itself for being so supportive of having a strong gallery and art program," Griffin said. "Throughout my career here, it was really nice to see growth occur and be a part of it. I have learned as much from my students and faculty colleagues as I hope they may have learned from me, not just about teaching but about becoming a complete human being." (KSU News, Aubrey Hall, 9/6/06.)

      She was the recipient of the Governor's Award for Outstanding Georgia Woman in Art in 1997 and the KSU Distinguished Service Award in 2001. Ms. Griffin exhibits her work regionally, and her art is in the permanent collections of several museums and numerous corporate and private collections. The Sturgis Library Gallery showed a thirty year retrospective of her paintings, drawings and prints from June 7-July 26, 2006. "Transmutations: The Art of Roberta Griffin" received wide recognition in the Atlanta press. She plans to teach several art courses each year as well as to continue to develop and exhibit her own work.

      Educational Philosophy

      Graphic Design is a powerful and fully-engaging discipline. Graphic design takes a highly-motivated, disciplined and independent thinker who looks within the problem to find the right solution. In the classroom, Jeanne Sperry encourage students to be effective problem-solvers first, and to reach for higher levels of achievement, commitment and responsibility, and to make things of value.

      With a strong emphasis on service-learning, her classroom becomes a real world experience which makes a significant contribution to help clients within the university and surrounding community, while giving the student a high level of responsibility and reward.

      Her focus in the classroom is on building a strong foundation of graphic design principles and problem-solving skills, with a focus on building a strategy plan, effective research, and a high level of technical skill. She not only practices this in her own graphic design firm, but stresses this in the classroom, as well.
