Dr. Nancy R. Johnson, Karen A. Hamblen Jan 1991

Dr. Nancy R. Johnson, Karen A. Hamblen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Dr. Nancy R. Johnson served as the Coordinator of the Caucus from 1983 to 1987. In that sense, she is a factual part of the history of the Caucus, and she needs to be mentioned in any discussion of how the Caucus was founded and how it developed. I believe, however, that Nancy's career and her association with the Caucus are more significant than the facts of the matter or even what she accomplished as Coordinator; rather, her career and what she valued are paradigmatic in many ways of why the Caucus was formed and why it continued to ...


Art And Politics In John Berger’S Novel A Painter Of Our Time, Stuart Richmond Jan 1991

Art And Politics In John Berger’S Novel A Painter Of Our Time, Stuart Richmond

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

During the past two decades, art educators have been made more aware of the influence of ideologies in both art and education. We have seen, for example, as with Berger's Ways of Seeing (1972), and recent feminist art and scholarship, the degree to which art has been complicit in the stereotyping of women. We have been made increasingly aware of the broader social and political dimensions of art and art education and of the art of different ethnic groups. This journal is partly responsible for that shift of understanding.

Art Criticism As Ideology, Elizabeth Garber Jan 1991

Art Criticism As Ideology, Elizabeth Garber

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Schools have been found crucial sites of economic, political, and ideological reproduction. A non-reflective approach to art criticism that relies on visual description of the artwork or expressive response to the visual elements ensures that popular and dominant ideologies about what is art, what is good or important, and what is meaningful will prevail unquestioned. These ideologies include economic interests, as Gablik (1985) has argued; moral interests, as we have seen with, Jesse Helms' recent campaign (that might also have been fueled by a desire to reduce government spending); and the class interests of an economically powerful elite. The ideological ...


Feminist Film Theory And Art Education, Michael J. Emme Jan 1991

Feminist Film Theory And Art Education, Michael J. Emme

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Every ten years or so, lonely voices make themselves heard in the art education literature shouting something like ‘Pay attention to the “newer media” (Lanier, 1966, p.7), or ‘Have you heard? There a “new image world” (Nadaner, 1985, p.9) out there.’ One writer even suggested that “directed, critical inquiry of [television] will extend knowledge in art and aesthetics and enhance the quality of peoples’ lives (Degge, 1985, p.85) Despite these sporadic exhortations, Jaglom and Gardner’s (1981) observation that “our culture has not yet invented ways of presenting [the mass media] or teaching its structure to children ...


Community Projects And The University Curriculum: Re-Searching For A Civil Rights History Through Community Photographs, Jan Peterson Roddy, Benita R. Vanwinkle Jan 1991

Community Projects And The University Curriculum: Re-Searching For A Civil Rights History Through Community Photographs, Jan Peterson Roddy, Benita R. Vanwinkle

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The following articles represent a collaborative process, as does the project that we will discuss. It is not within the scope of these articles to engage in an in depth examination of community photography. This practice and its relationship to high art, cultural production and representation has been the topic of other very interesting investigations. We will instead focus on a possible relationship between community photography and the higher education curriculum, wherein each project facilitates the other. The first article represents my view of the pedagogical foundations of this relationship as the instructor and a participant in this process. The ...


The Names Quilt And The Art Educator’S Role, Doug Blandy, Karen Branen, Kristin G. Congdon, Laurie E. Hicks Jan 1991

The Names Quilt And The Art Educator’S Role, Doug Blandy, Karen Branen, Kristin G. Congdon, Laurie E. Hicks

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

During October of 1989, more than 9,000 individual memorial quilt panels were collected and displayed in Washington, D.C. by the NAMES Quilt Project. The panels, covering the equivalent of nine football fields, made public the grief of thousands of individuals and families whose loved ones have died of AlDS. This quilt, the NAMES Quilt, is an international effort to create a living visual memory of the devastation that the AIDS virus has inflicted on those who have died from the disease and those who have been left behind to grieve.


Commentary, Nick Webb Jan 1991

Commentary, Nick Webb

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

These remarks are adapted from part of the session at the 1990 NAEA conference in Kansas City that debated the proposition: “The Caucus on Social Theory is Neither Social nor Theoretical.” Webb subtitled his statement: "As the imaginary wine bottles said to the vintner - we're with you in theory but you can't cork us."

1986-89, Elleda Katan

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Reflecting upon the Caucus is for me a bit like reflecting upon an event like giving birth. Your work/body is taken over by larger forces. Your biography divides itself into pre and post. You can never again be who you were. And yet what is the Caucus on Social Theory? What's to be learned about it from that short period of "history" during which I worked as Coordinator {1986-89}?

1990, Amy Brook Snider

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Because this is our tenth anniversary year or because we are prescient or because we are in a perpetual state of healthy doubt, the Caucus began the task of self-definition al the last conference. Our newsletter, published three times this year, has featured a chain of letters in which eight of our 122 members have reflected upon what the term “social” in Social Theory means. Two of the sessions on this year's (conference) program continue that dialogue.


Editorial, Harold Pearse Jan 1991

Editorial, Harold Pearse

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Since the visual is at the core of our work as art educators, we, the editors, are giving special attention to reflecting and addressing that concern. Two of the articles in this issue feature photographs - Roddy and VanWinkle's report on the role of photographs in community self-empowerment and Barbara Lounder's reflections on The One Year Show, an exhibition in response to the "Montreal Massacre". Both articles rely on images to tell their story as much as they depend on words. Indeed, the reproductions of the pieces in The One Year Show are presented as a folio, as a ...


A Para-Critical/Sitical/Sightical Reading Of Ralph Smith’S Excellence In Art Education, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1991

A Para-Critical/Sitical/Sightical Reading Of Ralph Smith’S Excellence In Art Education, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Figuratively speaking Smith is an old, old man, at least three-hundred and fifty years old, a reincarnation of Matthew Arnold who established the field of liberal-humanist cultural tradition between 1852-1882. At that time, English literature carried into the school curriculum was an act of faith whereby the great works of literature would have a civilizing influence on the nation. They could do for the masses what the classics had apparently failed to do for the privileged: to provide a bulwark against rising materialism (akin to the leisure and apathy of our youth today); compensate for the failure of religion to ...


Origins, Bob Bersson Jan 1991

Origins, Bob Bersson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

An organization is frequently founded when Iike-minded people come together around issues and goals they feel strongly about. That is exactly how The Social Theory Caucus came about. We, as socially progressive, critically minded individuals, found each other so we could form an organizational home and agency of change within the National Art Education Association. Needless to say, no other organization within the art education profession was fulfilling those two functions for us.

Job Satisfaction Of Nurse Anesthesia Faculty: A Preliminary Study, James Patrick Embrey Jan 1991

Job Satisfaction Of Nurse Anesthesia Faculty: A Preliminary Study, James Patrick Embrey

Theses and Dissertations

This study examined how satisfied nurse anesthesia faculty are with their jobs. In addition, this study identified factors that influenced a nurse anesthesia faculty member's job satisfaction level.

A total of 304 nurse anesthesia educators from across the United States participated in this questionnaire survey study. A researcher developed personal data form (PDF) collected demographic information. The 1967 version of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) provided job satisfaction measurements.

There was a statistically significant correlation between the general satisfaction scores measured by the PDF and MSQ. Analysis of demographic data provided a CRNA educator profIle. Job satisfaction data indicated ...
