The Journal of Cultural Research in Art Education (jCRAE) is an annual publication of the United States Society for Education through Art. jCRAE focuses on social and cultural research relevant for art and visual culture education, including cultural foundations of art education, cross-cultural and multicultural research in art education, and cultural aspects of art in education. These areas should be interpreted in a broad sense and can include community arts organizations, schools, arts administration, art therapy, and other disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches that are relevant to art and visual culture education. Theoretical research and research in which qualitative and/or quantitative methods as well as visual and other formats and strategies are used will be considered for publication.

CALL FOR PAPERS for 2014

Mini-themed issue (Volume 34, 2014) on Space, Place, And Time in Art and Visual Culture Education

How do space and place affect the way we experience the world and create art? How do they affect the politics of who we are and how we teach? The Journal of Cultural Research in Art Education invites submissions for a mini-themed issue on Space, Place, and (or) Time in Art and Visual Culture Education, to be published Summer 2014.

Submissions from a broad range of perspectives are encouraged. A variety of formats are also welcome—including traditional academic essays, visual essays, or alternative formats—that fit the purposes of the journal to address issues of art, education, and culture.  Image-based submissions should be accompanied by explanatory text or an artist statement. Short manuscripts are generally 1,000 to 2,000 words, longer manuscripts 3,000 to 4,000 words.

Click here for a longer prospectus on the theme, or to submit, please visit http://www.jcrae.org.

Submissions on other topics are always welcome; space, place, and (or) time are a “mini-theme.”

Preferred deadline: 1 November, 2013

Send your submissions electronically to the journal editor, Elizabeth Garber, at egarber@email.arizona.edu.

RECENT ARTICLES AND FEATURES IN THE INTERNATIONAL MARXIST-HUMANIST WEBZINE (August 2013)
http://www.internationalmarxisthumanist.org/

EGYPTIAN MILITARY SEEKS TO EXTINGUISH REVOLUTION — by Kevin Anderson
The Egyptian military’s August 14 massacre of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood marked a reach for total power. The complicity of some parts of the democratic movement has placed in jeopardy the entire revolutionary wave that has gripped the country since 2011.

REFLECTIONS ON TURKEY’S GEZI PARK PROTESTS? — by Onur Kapdan
Draws lessons from the Gezi Park protests as new type of horizontal social struggle that goes beyond earlier Turkish politics, whether leftist or nationalist; analyzes the ideological control mechanisms of Turkish capitalism under Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP).

HEGEL IN 10 MINUTES? — by David Black
This riff on Hegel took place at a fringe meeting of the Association of Musical Marxists during the Marxism 2013 conference in London in July. [Originally appeared on the AMM website.]

ROSA LUXEMBURG: INTERVIEW WITH LUXEMBURG SCHOLAR AND EDITOR, PETER HUDIS
Dr. Lenore Daniels, a columnist for “Black Commentator Magazine,” discusses Luxemburg’s legacy as an anti-imperialist thinker and interviews Peter Hudis, co-editor of “The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg” (2011). [Originally appeared in OpEdNews.]

ANALYSES OF 2013 IRANIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION? — by Frieda Afary
Persian and English-language analyses that have attempted to comprehend these events have ranged from a dismissal of the election process as a completely engineered one, to uncritical support for the election results. [Originally appeared in Iranian Progressives in Translation.]

HUSBY RIOTS: THE OTHER FACE OF SWEDISH SOCIAL DEMOCRACY EXPOSED? — by Ba Karang
The recent rioting in Stockholm over the police killing of a Portuguese immigrant was a manifestation of the growing inequalities in Sweden, a society once seen as synonymous with social democracy.

TWO POEMS ON REVOLUTION? — by Sam Friedman

IRANIAN INTELLECTUALS BREAK TABOOS? — by Frieda Afary
Mohammad Nourizad and Mohsen Makhmalbaf are both filmmakers.  Both were active supporters of the Iranian regime but later turned against the regime and became ardent advocates of human rights.  Now they have openly broken with another feature of their past:  prejudice against religious minorities. [Originally appeared in Iranian Progressives in Translation.]

WHITHER THE IRANIAN DEMOCRATIC OPPOSITION? — by Frieda Afary
Although the recent disqualification of two candidates Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei from the election is very significant and further reveals the intense power struggles within the regime, more significant are the defining issues that continue to fuel the grassroots discontent inside Iran. [Originally appeared in Iranian Progressives in Translation.]
