Professor, Faculty of Education

Research Interests

Yaroslav (Slava) Senyshyn's academic background and research interests have been consistently related to interdisciplinary research in arts and moral education. His method of philosophical analysis draws mainly, but not exclusively, on an existential-phenomenological approach.

More recently, his work included a discursive analysis of students' discourse related to performance anxiety that combined a theoretical exploration of social constructionism based on Wittgenstein's philosophy. Within these broad parameters he has focused on various specific topics related to creative performance, teaching and music aesthetics vis--vis co-authorship of musical texts, subjectivity, objectivity, and anxiety in the moral-aesthetic fabric of society.
