The Popular Performing Arts, Non-Formal Education and Social Change in the Third World: A Bibliography and Review Essay. Bibliography No. 7.
Intended as a tool for non-formal education practitioners and researchers in identifying a range of relatively fugitive material, this bibliography includes 1,779 references to descriptive and analytical materials concerning the use of the performing arts as a medium for education and social change in the Third World. An introductory essay offers a state-of-the-art review of such major concepts as folk media and popular theater, the various strands of educational and developmental activity, and their varying methodologies, contents, and organizational contexts. Uses of the performing arts within mass national education programs, small-scale community education/development projects, and popular movements are contrasted and compared. It is concluded that the field is much broader than the folk media programs often cited in development literature. Citations are alphabetically arranged by main entry and are accessible via extensive geographical and topical indexes. (Author/LMM)
