CALL FOR CHAPTERS Chapter Proposal Due: May 29, 2009 Full Chapters Due: February 1, 2010 A Way Out of No Way : The Arts as Social Justice in Education Edited by Mary Stone Hanley, George Mason University; George Noblit, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; Thomas Barone, Arizona State University Objective of the book The arts continue to be marginalized in educational policy and practice. However, time and again art production and aesthetics have provided meaning amidst chaotic conditions in a quickly and constantly changing multicultural world replete with hierarchies of injustice based on a myriad of differences. The arts give the powerless engaged in the flow of creation and meaning-making an experience of empowerment and expression. Consciousness and conceptualization are heightened through the production and perception of the arts, which are much needed in the education of children, youth, and adults, especially those who are endangered by current educational practices. This text is an effort to center the need for social justice in education and the value of the arts in that endeavor through arts education, arts integration, and aesthetics.
