European Conference on Educational Research

Recentemente o Núcleo de Educação Artística do i2ADS – Instituto de Investigação em Arte, Design e Sociedade, propôs a criação de uma rede europeia em investigação em Educação Artística (Network 29) . A rede foi aprovada na European Educational Research Association e está a dar os seus primeiros passos. Assim, anualmente, estaremos presentes na European Conference on Educational Research. Neste momento, a rede conta com convenors de 4 paises europeus (Portugal, Espanha, Reino Unido e República Checa). A European Conference on Educational Research irá realizar-se em de 9 a 13 de Setembro de 2013 na Universidade de Bahçeşehir em Istambul.

O tema geral da conferência é Creativity and Innovation in Educational Research, e o tema proposto pela Network 29 é:

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 and practices, 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.
