Call for Papers: Performance Symposium 2019 ART & ART EDUCATION PROGRAM, TEACHERS COLLEGE, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY For “Performance: In Art and Art Education,” a scholarly symposium to be held March 29-31, 2019, at Columbia University’s Teachers College, we are looking for scholars, artists, performers, and educators interested in presenting academic papers on the topic of Performance. Sponsored by the College’s Art and Art Education Program, the symposium will examine the subject of Performance through a tri-partite lens by (1) situating it among its historical predecessors, (2) spotlighting its current manifestations, and (3) considering its pedagogical aspects and roles within the art education curricula of schools and cultural institutions. Defining Performance as a multi-disciplinary form of visual art that involves presentation of actions by live human bodies, we want to investigate such work in conjunction with the philosophies and practices of visual art education, be it in PK-12 schools, colleges and universities, museums, or other settings. Papers may address topics such as (but not limited to): - The history of Performance Art, Dadaism, Happenings, Fluxus - The Performa biennials - Contemporary Performance criticism - Performance theory and aesthetics - Performance philosophy - Delegated Performance - The teaching of Performance - Pioneering approaches to incorporating Performance and educational experiences. Please send a 500-word abstract to symposium coordinator and adjunct associate professor of art and art education Dr. Lisa Jo Sagolla at by October 29, 2018. Selected presenters will be notified by January 1, 2019.
