Call for Book Chapters –

From Linda-Hoeptner-Poling –

Dear Friends, Supporters, Colleagues of the NAEA Women’s Caucus

We have extended the deadline for receiving abstracts to our call for abstracts to OCT 1, 2015. We hope that you will submit an abstract of a chapter proposal and forward this note to colleagues to encourage proposal submissions.

CALL FOR CHAPTERS — Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism Book


EDITORS:  Karen Keifer-Boyd, Linda Hoeptner-Poling, Sheri Klein, Wanda Knight, and Adetty Pérez de Miles

ABOUT THE BOOK:  The book is based on the National Art Education Association’s Women’s Caucus Lobby themes and activism since 2008.

NOTE: Authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapters.  Beyond the NAEA Women’s Caucus sessions, meetings, and events that reside within the formal protocol of the NAEA, the Lobby Activism session serves as an informal space for personal as political discussion and action. Held the first evening of the NAEA Convention in the hotel lobby, since 2008, the one-hour open forum has evolved into a multi-modal form of engagement, including introductions, performance, artmaking, brainstorming and synthesizing ideas–as well as planning collaboratively for future action. A human microphone process used throughout the lobby amplifies our political voice in public feminist art pedagogy.

Lobby Activism book contributors might share their experiences as participants in each year’s Lobby Activism session. Contributions on lobby session influence, impact, theory, and possibilities are also encouraged. However, in each of the ten book sections we would like to extend beyond the Lobby Activism Sessions and encourage submissions that are about the themes. Therefore, authors from a range of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and not having participated in the Women’s Caucus and Lobby Sessions are also encouraged to submit chapters.

BOOK CHAPTERS:  The 10 sections of the book are formed from the annual themes of the Lobby sessions Diversity of approaches to scholarship relative to the book sections are encouraged.

See for suggestions for writing chapters or visual essays for one or more of the ten sections of the book, briefly outlined below. as well as photos and prompts/data/inspiration for the sessions and transcripts of audio recordings from each Lobby Activism session. As noted above, authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapter proposals.

2018: Activism: This section will include narratives of feminist activism through art and education.

2017: Entanglement. This section of the book revisions intersectionality theory as an entanglement of social identities and circumstances that hampers one’s ability to escape, disengage, or act at will, and activism that changes.

2016: Feminist Leadership. This section will include chapters on feminist leadership in art education in which art teachers are instrumental in transforming schools and communities.

2015: How do you (re)deSIGN gender codes in your teaching, art, and life? This section of the book will include explorations that (re)deSIGN binary-based constructions of gender in research, teaching, art, and life.

2014: Speak Truth to Power. This section will include case studies of speaking truth to power through art and/or art education.

2013: What are my personal responsibilities and our collective responsibilities to end violence? This section explores ways that art educators can disrupt systemic violence through pedagogy, service, community work, activism and other forms of resistance.

2012: What Do You Believe is Critical to Lobby For? This section explores how and why feminist art educators decide where to put activist energies both in and outside of the classroom at all levels of education, in addressing competing demands posed by issues of both personal and broader social landscapes of feminist activism.

2011: A Time When … This section of educational narrative inquiries will focus on how feminist art teachers’ conceptualize their work and navigate the personal, professional, pedagogical, and political.

2009: Enacting Change: What We Can Learn From Each Other? This section focuses on mentoring, reciprocity, dialogue, and networking.

2008: Vote: What Should an Art Educator Do?” Visual culture is omnipresent and plays a role in our everyday decisions from the products that we consume to important decisions such as presidential elections.

Second, please take note of the Graduate Student Pre-conference CFP below:

Philosophy of Education Society Annual Meeting — Making Philosophy of Education: A Graduate Student Pre-Conference Workshop
Thursday, March 12, 2015  –  2-7 pm  – Memphis Westin Beale Street
Working retrospectively and prospectively we are seeking to make originary philosophy of education at PES 2015. Toward that end,  graduate students in the field are invited to engage in a pre-conference workshop and take up the question energizing our gathering in Memphis: How do we make philosophy of education?  The pre-conference workshop aims to examine the articulation, production and dissemination of philosophy of education.  The five hour event will include a group dinner at the Keough Café.  The workshop will have two parts.  The first half will produce a set of theses in response to the question: How do we make philosophy of education?  Participants will be asked to think about the past and present work in the field, and to envision and articulate new possibilities. The second part of the event will be a hands-on workshop geared toward practical advice for navigating the job market.  It will include faculty who have recently completed successful searches and those who have been on hiring committees.  Feedback on CV construction, letter writing, and other concrete aspects of the search process. Participants are encouraged to bring their materials for sharing and review.  The second part will be lead by JOPE chair, Nakia Pope, along with Cara Furman (U Maine, Farmington), Tyson Lewis (UNT), and Sam Rocha (UBC).  Please join for this unique experience to make the future of PES!

The workshop is a first-come, first-serve open-enrollment event.  Deadline to enroll is February 6, 2015.    Any and all inquiries should be sent electronically to Eduardo Duarte, PES 2015 Program Chair     This workshop is collaboration between PES Memphis 2015, PES JOPE, GSCOPE 2015, with support from PES 2015 President Frank Margonis.

Maxine Greene’s Legacy

Here is a tribute to Maxine Greene from Kurt Stemhagen, Executive Director of the Philosophy of Education Society. 

Former Philosophy of Education Society President Maxine Greene passed away Thursday at the age of 96. Her vast body of accomplishments on the part of the arts, continental philosophy, and education are well documented and too great to be enumerated in this brief announcement. Detailed accounts of her life and work can be found in the following links:

For the members of PES, she was a colleague, a mentor, a friend and a great inspiration. Her work in Phenomenology, aesthetics, and in thinking about social change, has left an indelible mark upon our collective work, and continues to challenge us to think beyond the “cotton wool” of every day experience, particularly those habits of mind that stultify academic discourse.

Maxine’s work is a testament to her Existentialist ethic of being forever “not yet.” She consistently found unexpected and unexplored corners in the overlap between philosophy and education, whether that meant a chapter on Melville in her early book on American education or a reinvention of the philosophical salon, held in her apartment overlooking Central Park on Sunday afternoons, in which sometimes forty or fifty people sat on the floor and stood in the hall to discuss favorite works of literature: Middlemarch, White Noise, Heart of Darkness.

Her perspective was not always received in the serious, earnest spirit with which it was offered. She often told a story of travelling to Bear Mountain to attend the nineteen sixty something spring meeting of the Middle Atlantic States Philosophy of Education Society, a boys’ club of analytical philosophers who tolerated her presence, to a point. That year, her paper on the power of poetics in relating the personal and the political was met with a two word response: “Fuck Rilke.” She always laughed at this part of the story, begging pardon for her “French,” and relating how frustrated she was by the easy dismissal of her ideas.

It may be obvious, but still worth pointing out that she was the one laughing at the end of that story, as time and changes in the culture of the academy made room for her brand of insight, and gradually eclipsed the work of those from whom she sought recognition. It may be even more obvious, and yet still worth stating that given the limited space for philosophical practice in a world of educational research ever more dominated by quantifiable gains, Maxine Greene’s legacy is even more important to us in remaining true to our work and finding new ways of articulating our ideas to the world beyond the academy.
