CALL FOR ARTICLES, COMMENTARIES, AND MEDIA REVIEWS
A special joint publication of Studies in Art Education and Art Education Journal
Call for Articles, Commentaries, and Media Reviews on Theory and Practice in Art Education
There is an enthusiastic devotion to certain principles of lofty theory in the abstract…and there is a school practice taking little heed of the official pedagogic creed. Theory and practice do not grow together out of and into the teacher's personal experience.
—John Dewey, The Relation of Theory to Practice. (1904)
Numerous fields speak of the relationship between theory and practice. Much has been written regarding theory and practice in fields as diverse as Business (Locke & Golden-Biddle, 1997), Language Acquisition (Street, 1984) and Foreign Policy (George, 1993). Many of these fields that are concerned by such discrepancies are service-based, such as Nursing (Allmark, 1995) and Information Communication Technology. When the relationship between theory and practice is analyzed, it is commonly communicated using terms such as ‘gap,’ a ‘divide,’ or a ‘split.’
What is the relationship between theory and practice in the field of Art Education? This joint publication between Studies and Art Education will present current research that deals with theory in practice in its numerous varieties and conditions. Authors may wish to submit work that addresses the following questions:
General relationship between theory and practice
• What motivates perceptions of a gap between theory and practice in art education?
• In a practice related field, what is the role of theory?
• How might art education become a culture of inquiry?
• What are examples of dynamic relationships between theory & practice, inside and outside of art education?
• What problems of practice are under-researched, not researched at all, or under-theorized?
• What concerns have dominated art education research in recent times? How relevant are these concerns for classroom practice?
• What are key historical instances when art education theory and practice have intermeshed? What do these instances suggest for the present?
Dissemination of theory and practice
• What common issues of theory and practice have informed publications in Art Education and Studies in the past decade?
• Why has theory failed to impact the reactive based culture of education and what might be done differently?
• Theory often plays a minimal role in practice. How might that change? What are the impediments?
• How do specialized language and assumed prior knowledge pose obstacles between theory and practice?
Artistic theory and practice
• How does artistic theory and practice intersect with art education theory and practice?
• What role does theory play in artistic practice? What role does artistic practice play in art theory? What can we learn from this relationship that might inform art education classroom practice and theory?
• How do artforms such as performance art relate to theory development and practice-based
Terms That Might Generate Significant Issues
Thinking/Doing, Insiders & Outsiders, Language, Relevance/Irrelevance, Divisions/Commonalities, Spaces Of Practice/Spaces Of Theory, Myths, Rituals, Change, Resistances, Presences/Absences, Complications, Realistic/Unrealistic, Accessibility, Risk-taking
The Senior Editors of the Journal of Art Education and Studies in Art Education invite manuscripts that address this topic, “Theory and Practice in Art Education.” Authors should submit articles to either journal. All submissions for this special issue should follow the established submission guidelines for the appropriate journal.

Special Issue of Art Education on Violence and Art Education
The topic of violence has been addressed by art educators in numerous ways: as a component of popular visual culture (Freedman, 2000); as a form of expression in child art (Wilson & Wilson, 1982; Duncum, 1986); and as a form of political resistance. Duncum (2006) outlines the numerous forms of media violence relevant to art educators describing forms of violence as comic, transgressive, retaliatory, and gratuitous.
In the wake of recent high-profile school shootings and the ongoing public debate over violent media, art educators are once again caught between calls for awareness/safety and free expression. What current discussions about violence are taking place in art classrooms, museums, community centers, and prisons? How are art educators responding to forms of violence that are expressed in the spaces of learning? Are forms of symbolic violence, expressed as art, being read in way that shut down dialogue?
This special issue of Art Education looks to open up a space for debate and discussion. Authors may wish to respond to one of the questions listed above, or to one of the topics listed below:
Art History and Violence; Dangerous Play; Bullying; Symbolic Violence; Violence in Media; Institutionalized Violence; Violence in/Through/to Language; Agency and Catharsis
Robert W. Sweeny, Editor of Art Education, invites manuscripts that address the topic of ‘Violence and Art Education.’ Authors should submit articles to firstname.lastname@example.org, following the established submission guidelines outlined at www.arteducators.org/arteducation.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
