Title: Perspectives on arts education research in Canada
Editor: Bernie Andrews
Description of the Project:
Arts education research in Canada has increased significantly since the beginning of this century. New forms of arts-based research, such as ethnodrama and a/r/t/ography, have arisen and made significant contributions to the literature. Researchers in departments/schools/faculties of dance, drama, music, visual arts, media studies, cultural studies and education have been successful in acquiring peer-reviewed grants from arts councils and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council to undertake large-scale projects and disseminate the findings internationally. The purpose of this edited collection, entitled Perspectives on arts education research in Canada, is to provide an overview of the current research undertaken across the country, thereby providing a valuable resource for students, professors and research associates working in the arts disciplines, media studies, education, and cultural studies.
Contributors: Members of the Arts Researchers and Teachers Society (ARTS) within the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE)
Elementary and secondary arts educators, undergraduate and graduate students, professors and research associates in departments/schools/faculties of dance, drama, music, visual arts, media studies, cultural studies and education across Canada.
