Title: Learning Through Art: Lessons for the 21st century?

Editors: Glen Coutts & Teresa Torres de Eça

During 2015, the InSEA Publications Working Group, established InSEA Publications to complement the range of publishing opportunities for our members and others wanting to publish with us. The idea of a publication that celebrates our core mission of ‘education through art’, we thought, was a timely one as Read’s seminal book, Education through Art was published in 1943 and the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA) was established in 1954. Given that passage of time and the seismic socio-political, ecological and economic changes that have taken place in the latter half of the 20th century we thought the time was right to invite our members and the wider art education community to reflect on the evolving nature of art education around the world. It seemed to us that there was an opportunity to take stock; to share research and praxis. Our view is that InSEA is a member led organisation, so we hoped that members would welcome a call that sought to critically examine what ‘learning though art’ might mean in practice. We believe this book continues and develops the tradition of InSEA supporting existing and new members in their efforts to celebrate research and good practice in art education (Preface, p.9).

Title: Pedagogical Globalization: Traditions, Contemporary Art, and Popular Culture of Korea (published in 2017)

Editors: Ryan Shin, Maria Lim, Michelle Bae-Dimitriadis, & Oksun Lee

ISBN : 978-989-20-5388-2

D.O.I: 10.24981/978-989-20-5388-2

This book offers art educators aesthetic, philosophical, and socio-cultural foundations of Korean art and visual culture in a global context, highlighting both Korea’s artistic traditions and contemporary art and visual culture. Until now most researchers and K-12 teachers have had limited access to Korean art and visual culture due to the lack of resources published for the Western audience and other sides of the world. Through this book, the readers will engage in Korean art forms, culture, and traditions, exploring pedagogical approaches and research topics emerging in Korea and also taking them to a global stage for intercultural research and teaching. With the purpose of exploring diverse Korean artistic traditions and their pedagogical applications for the audience around the world, the authors address both theoretical understanding and practical applications of teaching Korean art in art education.

Editors: Re-Estetizando- Algunas Propuestas para alcanzar la independencia en la educación del arte .

This E-book is the first open source publication of InSEA . Thanks to the editors Isabel Moreno Montoro; Victor Cordoba and Ana Tirado de la Chica who generously shared their work with the other InSEA members. The book is a challenging collection of essays from authors from Spain; England; Greece , Caribbean and Latin American countries. The main topic is art and education for social transformation and the different authors approach the theme bringing up suggestions for actions in the society.The book is built upon the idea that we need to insist and resist to the problematic issues of art education, specially now when the great majority of the western governments are reducing the role of arts education in the curriculum of public schools. According to the authors insisting in advocating for the need for arts education is not enough, there is a need to go forward and present activist situations , real actions of art in education to reach socio-political spaces ; non formal sites where the arts can play a reconstruction role for social well being and to promote critical awareness for active citizenship. The different chapters of the book bring up possible roads , mapping radical possibilities within institutional spaces.
