The Bulletin of the Caucus on Social Theory and Art Education, n3 1983
The "Bulletin of the Caucus on Social Theory and Art Education" is an annual publication, with each issue devoted to a unified theme. This issue (divided into four parts) offers thought-provoking articles on modern art, educational ideology and curriculum, elitism versus populism, socially oriented reviews of major art education textbooks, and relevant study resources. Part 1 features three papers designated as articles: "Art Research and Curriculum to Accomplish Multicultural Goals" (Myrna T. Amdursky); "Modern Fine Art: A Vehicle for Understanding Western Modernity" (Karen A. Hamblen); and "Marginal Images: Art and Ideology in the School" (Dan Nadaner). Part 2 presents two papers featuring points of view: "For Cultural Democracy: A Critique of Elitism in Art Education" (Robert Bersson) and "Elitism versus Populism: The Continuing Debate" (Ralph A. Smith). Part 3 contains material from a forum with three papers: "A Critique of Elliot Eisner's 'Educating Artistic Vision'" (John Jagodzinski); "Socially Relevant Practice in 'Art, Culture, and Environment'" (Nancy R. Johnson); and "Social Relevance in Lowenfeld's 'Creative and Mental Growth'" (Robert J. Saunders). Part 4 is an annotated bibliography from members of the caucus on social theory, compiled by Susan L. Dorsey. (DB)
