Consisting of international case studies of art education, by scholars in different countries, this book analyzes the translation of cultural knowledge through curriculum policy and practice. Each chapter focuses on historical and cultural influences on educational ideas that have crossed national borders and been transformed in the process. The range of influence is wide and includes popular culture, national politics, and professional goals. The studies illustrate the many ways in which culture and curriculum are intertwined and tell us why we theorize, write policy, and develop curricula as we do.
This book makes clear the importance of both self-consciousness and mutual understanding in a global, professional community. Through analysis of cultural and cross-cultural relationships, the authors reveal vital, but often hidden, national and international interests in education. Students experience curricula through school subjects, and this book illustrates the importance of understanding the deep, socio-cultural character of that experience.
