Demystifying the Professoriate in Visual Art and Design Education
Ward, Amber
Art Education, v67 n5 p48-53 Sep 2014
In the "Studies" article "Multiple Interruptions: Creative Encounters in Public Art and Public Pedagogy, A North--South Dialogue," Danny Wildemeersch and Astrid von Kotze write about the productive force of blurring institutional boundaries. They state: "As we negotiated our different relations of engagement with theory and practice across different contexts and scholarly traditions, we did not wish to pit one interpretation against another in a binary either/or competition of testing validity; instead, we explored how a dialogue on understandings generated from different contexts and places could lead to the emergence of new insights, questions, and values" (p. 314). Amber Ward is enacting a similar form of negotiation in this article, exploring the structural forms created in academia through playful and provocative textual interruptions. Where Wildemeersch and von Kotze engage in dialogue, Ward converses with her research subjects; she also establishes a dialogue within the data, creating codings that provide the reader with multiple interpretations and hypertextual possibilities.
