1. Hornbaker, Nicki Lynn. I Cut Off My... Voice: An Autoethnography of an Artist and Art Educator with a BRCA Genetic Mutation.

Degree: MA- Art, Art, 2018, Stephen F. Austin State University

The effects of BRCA genetic mutations on artists and art educators had not been known. Autoethnography is a qualitative method for writing about personal experiences through a cultural lens. I used my personal experiences within a BRCA positive community to understand shared experiences among artists and art educators with this genetic mutation. This study aimed to explore the commonalities that are occurring within this subgroup. Anxiety and emotional stress played a role in most of the respondents‟ lives, affecting them in numerous ways. Most of the respondents underwent salpingectomy, oophorectomy, and mastectomy surgeries which led to further emotional and physical stressors. All respondents voiced that they were determined to take control over their lives, whether that was through surgeries or continued preventative testing. The arts can empower many with a BRCA genetic mutation to share their stories and let their voices be heard. Keywords: autoethnography, BRCA, genetic mutation, artist, art educator, salpingectomy, oophorectomy, mastectomy, emotional, physical, empowerment, art. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. William Nieberding, Dr. Cala Coats, Dr. Heather Olson-Beal.

Subjects/Keywords: autoethnography; BRCA; artist; art; educator; education; empowerment; genetic mutation; Art Education; Fine Arts
