CALL FOR PAPERS
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THEMED-ISSUE V.78 N.4 – FALL 2014
THEME: AESTHETIC EDUCATION, ARTS AND LEARNING
For most of its history, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s credo (written in gold above the head of their signature image of a roaring lion) was “Ars Gratia Artis” (Art for Art’s Sake).
The Educational Forum, Kappa Delta Pi’s premier educational research journal, is seeking articles for its upcoming Fall 2014 themed issue entitled “Aesthetic Education, Arts and Learning”. The Educational Forum is an international peer-reviewed journal whose mission is to “publish compelling research findings and thought-provoking perspectives as a catalyst for stimulating and encouraging research and dialogue and for advancing and transforming education.”
Inspired by Maxine Greene’s work on aesthetic education and her call to the “wide-awakeness” that engagement with the arts can generate, The Educational Forum is seeking original empirical research and conceptual essays that explore ways of understanding and addressing the mutually beneficial relationships between arts and learning. In this context, arts may include the performing, visual and literary arts in addition to creativity development and other experiential practices or metacognitive concepts that contribute to education as a transformative process.
At a time when arts education and arts-based approaches to curriculum (across content areas and grade levels) are often characterized as “extra-curricular” rather than foundational and imperative, The Educational Forum seeks to explore aspects of the arts as critical curricular components of a comprehensive education. These may include, but are not limited to:
• How do approaches in aesthetic education enable meaningful engagement with works of art, encouraging learners to make connections across curricular disciplines?
• What does education in the arts provide for the children in our classrooms, for our teachers, for our society and for the arts, as well?
• What is the “value added” to educational experiences and understanding when arts-infused approaches to literature, science, math, history and other school-based fields of study are integrated into traditional classroom activities, assignments and practices? What happens to students’ engagement, motivation and achievement?
• How does the enhanced use of arts as a curricular principle enrich teaching and teachers’ creativity in planning and delivering meaningful instruction to their students?
• In what ways has technology contributed to aesthetic education and a heightened awareness of the synergy between arts and learning?
• What research and evidence is needed in order to advance arts in education as a foundational principle in both educational policy and practice?
• What tensions, challenges and obstacles are faced in arts education and how can we work to resolve them?
Papers that connect the issues and themes of “Aesthetic Education, Arts and Learning” to classroom practices and student/teacher experiences are of particular interest. For full and specific instructions to authors, including page lengths and formats, please visit our web link at:
Submission deadline: Monday, February 10, 2014
Submissions must be made at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/utef
Note to authors: Please include the code 784 at the beginning of your manuscript title
For more information on The Educational Forum, please visit the journal’s webpage:
Contact either Academic Editor Dr. Alan Amtzis at firstname.lastname@example.org or Managing Editor Carrie Gaffney at email@example.com with additional questions.

CALL FOR ARTS BASED SUBMISSIONS
Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy
The Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy is positioned at the intersection of curriculum theory, teaching studies, and arts-based research. Each issue of the journal features an abbreviated essay on arts based educational research (ABER). These short “essays” might include, but are not limited to visual artworks, documentations of performance artwork, ethno-drama, musical performances, poetry, narratives, or stills from videos complemented by a brief text that theorizes the art from the perspective of curriculum and pedagogy. The ABER section of the journal is separate from the published articles in each issue. Authors wishing to submit full-length manuscripts that are arts-based in nature should do so through the general call for manuscripts (please see above website). The submission process is comprised of three strands:
1) Arts based research accompanied by image(s). Please submit a short critical essay (up to 12 pages including references) that illuminates the intersection between the image(s) and curriculum and pedagogy or arts- based research. This essay should not be a mere description of the work, but rather it should engage a critical analysis among the arts, teaching and learning, and research methodologies.
2) Text based forms of arts-based research. Authors who work in literary arts or text-based forms of arts-based research may submit their work in this strand. Such work might include poetry, play scripts or fiction as such works pertain to themes within the ABER strand.
4) Student artwork (K through 12). Arts educators may submit images of work created by their students, or as documentation of performances of their students, for consideration. These images need not be accompanied by an essay but should include a brief 250-word “critical description” of the work and a 50-word biographical sketch of the student artist.
Authors who submit work for each of the three above mentioned submission strands must consider the following:
• 1-2 images (jpegs; minimum 300dpi for a 4”x6” image) with a signed release form or statement from the artist. (If the artist is a minor, the release form/statement must be signed by a parent or guardian. Contact the ABER editor for a release form.)
• a short 50 word biographical sketch (MSWord.doc or RichTextFormat.rtf) of the artist/researcher
• all text-based submissions must be a MSWord.doc or RichTextFormat.rtf, double-spaced, 10 or 12pt font.
ABER submissions should be submitted as follows: Please see the general submission guideline. Please mark your file ABER essay. For questions please contact the ABER Assistant Editor Morna McDermott at email@example.com.
