Kent L. Boyer is an arts writer, scholar, and teacher in Dallas, Texas.
I'm an arts writer, scholar, and teacher with interests in gender studies, pop culture, and the arts of the first half of the 20th century - particularly collaborative work between visual artists, composers, choreographers, poets, and novelists. I'm a PhD Candidate (ABD) in Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas. My dissertation looks at the turbulent decade of the 1950s through the poetry of Frank O'Hara.
I have lead an extremely unconventional, nomadic, and satisfying life. I have earned degrees in computer animation, science, chiropractic medicine, the arts and cultural traditions, and humanities; and a graduate certificate in Holocaust Studies. I've worked as a bank teller, retail jewelry buyer, Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, college professor, multimedia artist, instructional designer, Photoshop seminar lecturer, textbook author, IT change management leader, hospice marketer, social media guru, middle and high school curriculum designer, and web developer.
I teach Freshman Writing at the University of Texas - Dallas and Art Appreciation at El Centro College.
