Arts and Aesthetics: An Agenda for the Future. First Yearbook on Research in Arts and Aesthetic Education.
Madeja, Stanley S., Ed.
The book contains 30 speeches from a conference held in 1976 to develop a national agenda for research and development in the arts and education. The conference was sponsored jointly by CEMREL, Inc., and the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies. Participants included educators, administrators, and researchers involved in philosophy, art, music, humanities, child psychology, architecture, and drama. Seven major areas of research needs were identified: (1) testing and revising theories of aesthetic development in students; (2) optimizing the learning experience within the schools through aesthetic education and the arts; (3) investigating the relationship of cultural values to aesthetic learning; (4) improving evaluation in the arts and aesthetics; (5) developing an educational policy in the arts and aesthetics for the public schools; (6) establishing a mechanism for data collection in the arts and aesthetic education; and (7) creating a national center for research in the arts and aesthetics.
