Gadsden, V. (2008) The Arts and Education: Knowledge Generations, Pedagogy, and the Discourse of Learning. Review of Research in Education Feb 2008, Vol. 32, pp 29-61

This chapter focuses on the arts within a social-cultural-contextual framework, examining their role as a (re)source in educational theory, research, and practice. Rather

than highlighting individual disciplines within the field, typically referred to as "the arts," the chapter is concerned with the changing nature of the arts and what counts as

the arts. The chapter has a six-part structure that begins with an overview of issues that are central to redefining the relationship of the arts and education. This is followed

by a discussion of power, culture, and engagement, which is, in turn, followed by a discussion of epistemological considerations. The next section focuses on arts learning and

dispositions, followed by a section that describes research issues in arts learning, including challenges in and to current conceptualizations of the arts. The chapter concludes

with a focus on ways of expanding the role of arts education in schools and other learning and teaching communities.
