Assistant Professor Pam Patterson (Faculty of Art) is the guest editor of the spring 2020 issue of The Canadian Art Teacher (CAT), a peer-reviewed journal published semi-annually by the Canadian Society for Education through Art, edited by April Mandrona. The goal of the journal is to enable the exchange of exciting teaching ideas, to disseminate novel art education research, and to discuss pertinent issues in the field. Readers and contributors include artists, educators, and researchers interested in teaching and learning in the visual arts.
The theme of this issue is art education, trauma, and difficult knowledges. Submissions from art and design educators are welcome! CAT invites teachers and scholars to explore within themselves and with their students artistic and pedagogical responses to complex and potentially “difficult knowledges” and trauma.
Contributions may be theoretical or practical in nature, and submissions may include: scholarly research papers; reports; creative content such as photo essays; reviews of books (academic, children’s, or art), exhibitions, or resources; and lesson/project ideas. For more information, see the call for proposals (attached below).
An expression of interest (approx. 200 words) is requested September 15, 2019 and a full, final submission is due November 15, 2019. Inquiries and submissions may be directed to Pam Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
