Praxis and Pedagogy as Related to the Arts and Humanities
Mulcahy, D. G.
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v9 n3 p305-321 Oct 2010
Based on a review of its historical evolution and the contributions of significant writers in the field, this article addresses perennial questions of purpose, content and pedagogy in education in the arts and humanities and, more broadly, liberal education. Taking cognizance of the educational significance of service-learning and practical knowledge, it calls for a revitalization of arts and humanities education by drawing on elements of feminist theory as expounded by Jane Roland Martin and the emphasis on praxis, service and pedagogy in the writings of Paulo Freire, Ira Shor and others in the tradition of critical pedagogy. (Contains 2 notes.)
