Editorial Re(Mark)! The Question Of Representation, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1990

Editorial Re(Mark)! The Question Of Representation, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

As the perceptive, or should I say - receptive reader may not(e), no thumbprint appears in the margins of this years editorial-rather, an index finger 'figures' prominently. The index sign is particularly apropos for this issue for index signs give us dues to what is being represented. Deceivingly, they establish their meanings through a physical relationship to their referents. As Krauss puts it: "They are the marks or traces of a particular cause, and that cause is the thing to which they refer, the object they signify. Into the category of the index, we would place physical traces (like footprints ...


Creativity And Political Identification In The Work Of Herbert Read, David Thistlewood Jan 1990

Creativity And Political Identification In The Work Of Herbert Read, David Thistlewood

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The idea of a class conflict, in which a powerful minority subjugates the majority among other ways by depriving it of any sense of self-esteem deriving from worthwhile, original work - that is, by suppressing its creativity - was something Herbert Read acquired through his youthful involvement in the late stages of the Arts and Crafts Movement. It was a premise he was never seriously to question, as was the corresponding idea that to assert one's right to be creative was to engage in a political act. He was certain that artistic conventions were the means of suppression, and that to ...

Art Education In The Time Of Aids, Peter Schellin Jan 1990

Art Education In The Time Of Aids, Peter Schellin

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The health crisis which in recent years has depleted the ranks of the art community, has not received much formal notice in art education journals. A continuing stigma remains attached to AIDS due to its appearance among gay men and IV drug users. Many people pretend it is not there. My own life has become consumed by it, due to the illness of many, many friends and associates. For nearly two years, because of the enormity of the crisis combined with relatively little action on state and federal levels and the mounting grief and loss in my own life, I ...


Our Neighbours’ Understanding Of Art: A Class Field Study, Patricia Stuhr, Jeffrey Leptak Jan 1990

Our Neighbours’ Understanding Of Art: A Class Field Study, Patricia Stuhr, Jeffrey Leptak

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Most people believe that taste in art is highly individual, that one person’s opinion is as good as another. However, the literature on art and art education usually reflects the assumptions and values of the established authorities –art critics, historians, and aesthetic philosophers. It is assumed that, "With varying degrees of success, schools and colleges pass on a set of cultural values which reflect the dominant culture of society ... '" Jones, p. 135). Other institutions, such as museums, also promote these values. However, Johnson's study of socialization in art museum tours found that docents and visitors both emphasized the ...


Popular Culture’S Revolt Against The Normalizing Consequences Of Tradition, Pat Rafferty Jan 1990

Popular Culture’S Revolt Against The Normalizing Consequences Of Tradition, Pat Rafferty

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

For several years there has been an ongoing debate regarding whether street art (graffiti) qualifies as art or could be more aptly described as vandalism. While this paper does not claim to resolve the issue, a discussion of the corollary of that - the extent to which we are willing to tolerate divergence from normative expectations, lends insight into the topic of the means and limitations of what is representable as art.


Introduction(S) To Men In Feminism, Kristin G. Congdon, Doug Blandy Jan 1990

Introduction(S) To Men In Feminism, Kristin G. Congdon, Doug Blandy

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In the Spring of 1988 I received a note from Doug Blandy asking if I wanted to co-ordinate a panel on "Men in Feminism" with him. The idea of men working with feminist ideas was not new to our discussions. When we worked together at Bowling Green State University, we often wondered (and indeed frequently laughed) at how gender related the reactions of our faculty and students probably were to our successes and failures. Shortly after I agreed to coordinate this panel with Doug, I attended a conference in the Pennsylvanian mountains in "Women, Art and Society." This was my ...


Feminism As Metaphor, Amy Brook Snider Jan 1990

Feminism As Metaphor, Amy Brook Snider

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

When I was first invited to be on a panel discussing “Men in Feminism," my only thoughts on the topic were, "Sure, we need men in feminism. Feminism is a way of looking at the world, so why not!" But then I continued to myself how could I be a spokeswoman for men? Maybe only men are in a position to talk about the subject, Perhaps if I read the book. Men in Feminism, the selection of presentations from two sessions of an MLA Conference in 1984 which inspired this panel, I'd have more to say about the topic ...


Queen-Of-The-Mountain: A Game I Can Play, Ken Marantz Jan 1990

Queen-Of-The-Mountain: A Game I Can Play, Ken Marantz

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

From the top, let it be known that I was dragged into this arena, persuaded to participate only out of friendship for the organizers. My avowed reluctance was a function of genuine puzzlement about my ability to add any notions of substance to an already overloaded panel (I objected to the number of panelists, concerned about front-end overload) and to concerns which to these simple-minded ears are far too academic for me to understand.


On The Impossibility Of Men In Feminism: Taking A Hesitant Step Through The Minefield Of Pheminism In Art And Education, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1990

On The Impossibility Of Men In Feminism: Taking A Hesitant Step Through The Minefield Of Pheminism In Art And Education, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The relationship of men in pheminism is an impossible one. On the one hand, the "proposition" of the preposition is intrusive; it signifies break and enter with all the multiple meanings that this entails, from virginal to criminal reprochment. On the other hand, the “preposition" of the proposition is an illusionary one, both in its flirtatious invitation to men and in its very non-existence of being, for there is no inside nor outside. Men are "implicated” in this relationship by virtue of both their difference and indifference which lie on either side of the "membrane" that separates the sexes. In ...


Acting Out Caring: An Andogynous Trait, Clayton Funk Jan 1990

Acting Out Caring: An Andogynous Trait, Clayton Funk

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

A problem in gender studies concerns frequent critique of sex-role stereotypes. But how often do we analyze characteristics that men and women have in common? The notion is doubtful that women must be essentially nurturant and empathic, and that men must be analytical and assertive. The strongest educators possess the best of both, no matter the gender, and are usually capable of modeling a sensibility of caring about learning.

Sandra Rowe: Androgyny And The Janusian Split, Charles Gaines Jan 1990

Sandra Rowe: Androgyny And The Janusian Split, Charles Gaines

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The work of Sandra Rowe cannot be understood within the specific concerns of social/political discourse alone. Indeed, her subject matter suggests a deeper, more complex polemic. Rowe is interested in the postmodern controversy surrounding the nature of the subject, i.e., she is not only questioning the centralized and linear notion of subject as constructed by modernist discourse, but in fact positing an abstract notion of the subject, a theory of "lack" or "absence'" that stands as the privileged object of her investigation. The issues raised by her work are not important because of their social commentary alone, but ...


The Need For Openness In Art Education, Dan Nadaner Jan 1990

The Need For Openness In Art Education, Dan Nadaner

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Can art education tolerate art? It looks more and more like the answer is no. Art requires imagination, play, openness and critical questioning. Art education, as an institution, tends to produce practices inconsistent with imagination, play, openness, and critical questioning. The dominant practices of the field tend to define, to reify, to certify, to enshrine.

Art Education And The Promotion Of Intercultural Understanding, F. Graeme Chalmers Jan 1990

Art Education And The Promotion Of Intercultural Understanding, F. Graeme Chalmers

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The comparative study of art, of response to art, and the production of art forms which matter can help us to understand each other. Art has always been a powerful force in shaping our vision of the world. We need to understand each other's vision and keep our own alive. We need to combat any art-for-art's-sake attitudes that may be entrenched in schools because it is a rather peculiar notion of art and one that deters a full understanding of the role of art in a variety of contexts and cultures. In contrast, art educators who view art ...


The Promises Of Art Appreciation: The Foundations Of Aesthetic Education, Charles R. Jansen Jan 1990

The Promises Of Art Appreciation: The Foundations Of Aesthetic Education, Charles R. Jansen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

A history of appreciation could quickly multiply into a collection of histories, some tracing theories of appreciation as a phenomenon of mind and some tracing appreciation as a pedagogical subject or goal. In order to limit the directions a history of appreciation could take, this paper assumes that art appreciation in pedagogy encompasses and reflects various theories of art appreciation as a process of mind and thus focuses on the institutionalization of art appreciation.


The Limits Of Linear Modes Of Inquiry Into Naturalistic World-Views: A Case Study Of Cherokee Culture, Karen L. Sorensen, Charles G. Wieder Jan 1990

The Limits Of Linear Modes Of Inquiry Into Naturalistic World-Views: A Case Study Of Cherokee Culture, Karen L. Sorensen, Charles G. Wieder

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

We begin with the cultural-anthropological assumption that a people’s world-view is based in concepts of time and process, and is reflected in the ceremonies, customs, rituals, and other traditional patterns of social conduct within the society. In a case study of the Native American Cherokee, linear modes of inquiry, characteristic of Western science, are shown to be limited in their capacity to examine and appreciate these dimensions of culture in pre-literate societies. It is suggested that those aspects of our own culture which are grounded in aesthetic value may also be relatively inaccessible for the same reason. By examining ...


A Modernity-Postmodernity Dialectic On Men In Feminism, Karen A. Hamblen Jan 1990

A Modernity-Postmodernity Dialectic On Men In Feminism, Karen A. Hamblen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In my discussion of men in feminism, I will focus on this topic in terms of art educators employed in higher education. My comments are based on the assumption that feminism and its attendant values, attitudes, and behaviors are seen as something that men, in some way, react to, adjust to, or, just plainly, take into consideration at this time in history. An ostensibly neutral stance is not possible - ignoring feminism is itself charged with value judgments. Questions, however, arise as to how an optimum state of sex equity and gender consciousness might occur and what relationships men would have ...


The Not So Mysterious Ways Of Mystification, Georgia Collins Jan 1990

The Not So Mysterious Ways Of Mystification, Georgia Collins

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

According to my reading of Men in Feminism, in the Modern Language Association, male interest in feminist issues is already considerable: MLA men lecture and write in the feminist mode; want to be acknowledged for doing so; and ask that discussions of male responsibilities and roles be placed on the feminist agendas. The task of defining roles for sympathetic males in what is otherwise understood to be a woman's “do-it-yourself" movement may be a real problem for our MLA sisters. But back in the NAEA, we have a different set of problems and, I would submit, a unique opportunity ...

Collecting Women’S Art And Native American Artificates: Issues For Museum Curators, John Wilton Jan 1990

Collecting Women’S Art And Native American Artificates: Issues For Museum Curators, John Wilton

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Egalitarianism is quite possibly the education buzzword of the eighties. Egalitarianism is belabored in the literature of late that it seems inconceivable that any person or institution with any degree of social responsibility has not yet acted to realign the programs and policies of our biased past. Yet many major social groups still remain disenfranchised in the current American cultural scenario. This commentary addresses the predicament of two of those groups-women and Native Americans. While seemingly unrelated, both groups share a common dilemma: their voices, their opinions and their expressions are not yet respected in the realm of art and ...


Examining Environmental Advertising Imagery Through Art Education, Tom Anderson Jan 1990

Examining Environmental Advertising Imagery Through Art Education, Tom Anderson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This is an examination of advertising imagery in the United States, with particular emphasis on outdoor advertising, and a proposal for an art curriculum focused on advertising awareness. The method is socially-oriented art criticism funded by some history of advertising and the psychology and philosophy of persuasive, manipulative, and pecuniary symbolism. The intent is first to decode the aesthetic environment (Barbosa, 1988) and then present a structure that helps art students to do the same. The examination begins with the object and returns to the object for validation (Ecker and Kaelin, 1970), but "ends with an understanding of personal experience ...


A Gender Exposition: Black And White Images In The Grey Chain Of Being, Jim Paul Jan 1990

A Gender Exposition: Black And White Images In The Grey Chain Of Being, Jim Paul

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

It is interesting how the numerical demarcation of a decade spurs one to reflective stock-taking and visionary anticipation. We know that the beginning or termination of long-term social trends do not “naturally” fall into neat groups of tens. Still, as empirically-entrenched and categorically-minded consumers we must quench our never-ending thirst to link events until we have reduced them into man”age”ableness. We are more at ease when we can name where we have been and visualize where the future will be.
