Journal of Multicultural and Cross-cultural Research in Art Education, v1-8 1983-1990
This document contains eight volumes of "The Journal of Multicultural and Cross-cultural Research in Art Education." Founded in 1981 by the United States Society for Education through Art, the journal's purpose is to promote a greater understanding of diverse cultures and to explore the role of art in multicultural education. Featured articles discuss areas such as art and social understanding, cultural identity and pride, community art education, themes from children's graphic narratives, contemporary street murals, folk art, stereotypes in art, morality of international art education, and the challenges of teaching art in a multicultural society. Some of the countries and cultures described include Korean-American, Australian, Egyptian, Finnish, Oglala Sioux, Brazilian, Canadian, French Canadian, Kenyan, Japanese, and Tibetan. Issues of race and cultural diversity in the United States and other countries are discussed. Volume 4, Number 1 is a special issue devoted to a joint conference of the Canadian and U.S. Societies for Education through Art. This issue discusses exploring cultural backgrounds and features, specific dimensions of, and roles occupied by, art in culture, and applications of a culturally mediated approach to programs, curriculum, and the pursuit of knowledge. Art's ability to explore topics that people "don't talk about" and bring to the surface images that remind people of what one group has or lacks in relation to other groups is recognized. (DK)
