NAEA (National Art Education Association) has put out
an "all call" for Papers on Arts-based Research.
Special Issue of Studies in Art Education
Studies in Art Education will publish a special issue
of scholarly papers addressing the possibilities,
challenges, opportunities, and tensions
associated with arts-based research.
Across disciplines there is a discursive explosion of
interest in arts-based research. In art education,
creative alternative ways of conceptualizing,
analyzing, interpreting and representing research
increasingly take center stage at conferences and in
Manuscripts for this special issue may address a
generous range of issues and represent a variety of
perspectives and research experiences.
Following are possibilities that might be addressed
and/or exemplified as they relate to
arts-based research and art education: historical and
theoretical underpinnings; limitations, caveats;
design elements/methodology; researcher skills
and sensibilities; craft/aesthetics;
implications on policy and praxis; reports of
exemplary arts-based studies; etc.
Manuscripts for this special issue follow established
submission guidelines and should be sent to the Senior
Editor of Studies in Art Education.

I know that Pam Stephens' pre-service teachers are
actively involved in at least three research projects
right now. I wouldn't be surprised to see them appear
in Studies in Art Education some day.
Kathy Douglas...maybe we will see some new research
published on benefits of TAB Choice some day?
