Dr. Dichupa has taught Foundations of Academic Literacy (FAL X99) since 2007. Her academic work is interdisciplinary; it is located in the intersection of Philosophy and Visual Culture Studies. She builds on the notion of the gaze as an aspect of dialogue that defines social dynamics. One of the tasks of the educator is to elicit the countergaze—a moment of insight when one recognizes the gaze and its action. Dr. Dichupa's current work stems from ideas she developed while earning a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction at SFU.
