Research Methods and Methodologies for Multicultural and Cross-Cultural Issues in Art Education. Crossing Cultural, Artistic, and Cyber Borders: Issues and Examples in Art Education Conference (Tempe, Arizona, January 7-8, 2000).
La Pierre, Sharon D., Ed; Stokrocki, Mary, Ed.; Zimmerman, Enid, Ed.
This monograph is the outgrowth of a conference that explored research concerns related to multi-cultural and cross-cultural contexts in art education. In the monograph, presentations are organized into three sections. Section 1 deals with basic research methods and methodologies, and introduces new methodological perspectives for consideration. Section 2 discusses qualitative methods of research and how to conduct such research in multicultural and cross-cultural settings. Section 3 deals with authentic research issues of assessment and how this determines what is appropriate in multi-cultural and cross-cultural contexts. The final section relates everything to a panel discussion that finalized a series of events which preceded the conference opening (January 6, 2000). Chapter titles include: (1) "Finding Common Ground for Research Methods and Methodologies from an Artistic Perspective" (Sharon D. La Pierre); (2) "Before Choosing a Research Method" (Peter Smith); (3) "An Ecological Approach to Art Education Research for Diverse Populations" (Bernard Young); (4) "Nutrition, Flavor and Aesthetic Appeal: The Process of Preparing and Publishing Research Data" (Elizabeth J. Garber); (5) "The Art of Culture Crossing" (Mary Stokrocki); (6) "Appalachia: A Narrative Study of Preserving a Subculture" (Tom Barone); (7) "Ethnographic Discoveries from an Intergenerational Visual Arts Program in New York City's Harlem" (Angela M. La Porte); (8) "Assessment Methods for Students from Diverse Populations" (Theresa Marche; Enid Zimmerman); and (9) "Panel Discussion on International Research Issues and Concerns: Format and Problem Scenarios" (Sharon D. La Pierre; Kit Grauer). (BT)
