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

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 1, 2015

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 http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/lobby-activism/ 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.

2010: What is the Image of a Feminist in the Field of Art Education Today? This section will explore aims of feminism and feminist pedagogy in art education for contemporary times.

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.

New SPE Website, Call for Papers

From Robert Morris:

SPE has a new website!   Go to: http://societyofprofessorsofeducation.wordpress.com  and see what our new webmaster, Kate Shively has put together for us. This new site was made easy by the work done by Jan Armstrong, the Society’s first webmaster. Our thanks go out to her for her years of work developing and maintaining SPE’s site. Thanks Jan for a job well done!  I’m told by our President, Jim Garrison, that you can even access the new site through the old webpage! Don’t ask me how, but he says it can be done!

Attached you will find a SPE call for papers for the 2014 meeting in Philadelphia (April 4-7, 2014). The call, put together by Jim, is an excellent way to get more members involved in the annual meeting. Please consider sending a proposal.

Finally, be on the lookout for a dues notice– if you are delinquent with 2013 dues. Its time to get caught up. For those who have paid within the last year you will be receiving our latest issue of Sophist Bane edited by Bill Schubert. So please send you dues and get our publications!
I hope school is going well for each of you as the Fall term begins, and I look forward to hearing from each of you in the near future. Keep in touch and have a good fall.

Sincerely, Bob Morris

New Educational Foundations

Colleagues,

I want to let you know about the pro bono foundations of ed website that SPE members Ed Rozycki and I operate. It deals with a wide variety of educational related issues and now attracts over 3 million visitors a year. You can visit and poke around by clicking on this link: http://www.newfoundations.com. Feel free to submit articles or links for inclusion.

You also might want to take a look at the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations — an electronic ed journal that four colleagues and I founded six months back. We intend it to be a “…forum for independent-minded teachers, professors, administrators, and researchers who prefer intelligent practice over merely implementing the will of others. We fear that “professionals” who just do what they are told may as easily serve a tyranny as a democracy; and, if they’re good enough at it, it becomes hard to tell the difference. There are alternatives to this scenario, and NEF will explore those alternatives.”

You might like to submit something for inclusion.To date we’ve had more than 12,000 downloads of our first two issues and now are looking for contributions for our third issue. Maybe you would like to add your voice. If so, please send your manuscript for review to: clabaugh@comcast.net. We do not favor any particular ideology. As a matter of fact, we intend that this journal be trans-ideological. Our emphasis is on ideas and dialogue.

Here are links to the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations.
First issue:  http://www.newfoundations.com/NEFpubs/NEFv1n1.pdf
