Black Feminist Theory in 21st-Century Art Education Research
Acuff, Joni Boyd
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v59 n3 p201-214 2018
Minority discourses rarely inhabit the intellectual space of dominant theory (masculinist, Eurocentric, White, heteropatriarchical, able-ist, bourgeois); thus, Black women's ability to be regarded as significant contributors to knowledge creation is negatively impacted. Art education is implicated in such oppression, as seen in the underrepresentation of Black women in art education research and in the field at large. This article presents Black Feminist Theory as an epistemological perspective to inform art education research methodologies in an effort to discontinue the historical and contemporary erasure of Black women's standpoint knowledge and presence in the field.
