Another doctoral fellow who is now Professor of Art at Tennessee
State University at Nashville, Betty Lou Williams, did her dissertation on
"An Examination of Art Museum Education Practices since 1984: In the
Context of the Evolution of Art Museum Education in America." I do not
have an email for Dr. Williams but you might be interested in contacting
her through her university.
For any doctoral students involved in art education, the Getty Center for
Education in the Arts offers up to eight fellowships each year for
students in the final research and writing stages of their dissertation.
Applicants must have a dissertation proposal approved by their doctoral
committee and be enrolled at an accredited university in the U.S. or
Canada. The fellowships are to support research that explores the
theory and/or practice of discipline-based art education or issues that
have significant potential to contribute to the further evolution of DBAE.
Applications for the 1997 fellowships will be available in Spring 1996
(application deadline will be Nov. 1, 1996).
An information session will be held at NAEA on Sunday, March 24 at
11:00 a.m. in Union Square 17/18. Anyone is welcome to attend. For
more information about the fellowships, please email me your mailing
address (epaul) or write: Elizabeth Paul, Getty Center for
Education in the Arts, 401 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 950, Santa Monica, CA
