The Autobiographical Lectures of Some Prominent Art Educators (No. 284)
RALPH RAUNFT, EDITOR
In an age that skeptically looks at the heroes of today and yesterday, and often unduly canonizes media or cultural superstars, The Autobiographical Lectures call art educators to acknowledge the contributions and lives of extraordinary people. Thus it becomes crucial for those involved in education to identify those persons that constitute examples of thoughtful, reflecting, and influencing. The heroes of the past...and the heroes of the present, both sung and unsung, must be studied and their means of influence understood and reconstituted so that they speak to the present milieu. For seasoned art educators, these lectures act as a collective memory-not only to motivate nostalgia, but also to give additional meaning and context to their own life history. These stories are not just the transmission of autobiographical information, but a social dialogue developed between the teller of the story and the audience that maintains a social bond. Lectures should be in every art education library collection for future students and researchers.
