Kip Jones to Advise on Springer's Arts-based Educational Research Book Series

Charles Voysey’s inscription on a handcrafted chest, 
which became the motto for the Society of Designers in 1896
Kip Jones is please to announce that Springer Publications has invited him to act as an Adviser on their new Arts-Based Educational Research Book Series. With more than 200 Nobel Prize winners among the authors of its books and journal articles, Springer’s editors discover the best authors and help to disseminate their research, while delivering the next big thing in scholarly communications.
Arts-Based Educational Research is increasingly employed across the disciplines of social science, education, humanities, health, media, communications, the creative arts, design, and trans-disciplinary and interdisciplinary research.
The hinge connecting the arts and research in this Arts-Based Educational Research book series is education. Education is understood in its broadest sense as learning/transformation/change that takes place in diverse formal and informal spaces, places and moments.

Kip is fond of reminding others that the concept of “Head, Heart and Hand” has a long history, including in the Arts. Charles Voysey, an artist/craftsman, utilized the phrase in his participation in the Arts & Crafts movement in 19th Century Britain.

Call for Submissions: Springer Publications announces its arts-based educational research book series. Queries and submissions should be sent via email in a word doc. format to Barbara Bickel at editor.aber.springer@gmail.com

 

This book series offers both edited collections and monographs that survey and exemplify Arts-Based Educational Research. The series will take up questions relevant to the diverse range of Arts-Based Educational Research. These questions might include: What can arts-based methodologies (such as arts based research, arts informed research, a/r/tography, poetic inquiry, performative inquiry, art practice based research etc.) do? How do the arts (such as literary, visual and performing arts) enable research? What is the purpose of Arts-based Educational Research? What counts as Arts-Based? What counts as Educational? What counts as Research? How can Arts-Based Educational Research be responsibly performed in communities and institutions, individually or collaboratively? Must Arts-Based Educational Research be public? What ways of knowing and being can be explored with Arts-Based Educational Research? How can Arts-Based Educational Research build upon diverse philosophical, theoretical, historical, political, aesthetic and spiritual approaches to living life? What is not Arts-Based Educational Research? 
The hinge connecting the arts and research in this Arts-Based Educational Research book series is education. Education is understood in its broadest sense as learning/transformation/change that takes place in diverse formal and informal spaces, places and moments. As such, books in this series might take up questions such as: How do perspectives on education, curriculum and pedagogy (such as critical, participatory, liberatory, intercultural and historical) inform arts based inquiries? How do teachers become artists, and how do artists become teachers? How can one be both? What does this look like, in and beyond school environments? 
Arts-Based Educational Research will be deeply and broadly explored, represented, questioned and developed in this vital and digitally augmented international publication series. The aesthetic reach of this series will be expanded by a digital on-line repository where all media pertaining to publications will be held.
