European Conference on Educational Research 2013

The European Conference on Educational Research 2013, ECER,  will take place at Bahçeşehir University in Istanbul, from September 9 to 13th.

The Conference theme is:

Creativity and Innovation in Educational Research.
The Network 29, Research on Arts Education, encourages the submission of papers, research workshops, round tables, and symposia on this general theme.
This year, the NW29 also suggests a special focus for proposals:

Transgressing comfort
Even if in the last few years we can find critical thinking positionings that question the hegemonic within arts education, the major narratives that prevail in contemporary practices perpetuate the modern myths of the arts for the self-expression and fulfillment of the student, the acquisition of technical skills and abilities, conducing to routinized models. The proposal for this ECER is to give space to alternative takings, questioning the platforms of comfort in arts education, transgressing the limits that are made to be valid within practice and research. We encourage researchers and phd students to engage critically with their fields of studies andpractices, making questionable what seems to be already an evidence. Historical research on arts education is also welcome in order to make the present arbitrary and contingent.

deadline for submissions: 2nd February 2013
