Percy H. Taçon Lecture in Art Education

February 24, 2012 - 5:30pm - 8:30pm, in the Ground Floor Library Space at OISE.

Title: Queered Pedagogies and Privatized Schools: Is Art Education Politically Relevant?

5:30pm - Reception
6:30pm - OAEA Awards
7:00pm - Lecture

Key Note Presenter: Therese Quinn

Education philosopher Maxine Greene wrote of the relationship of art to social transformation that, “The arts will help disrupt the walls that obscure…spheres of freedom.” But in privatized education settings the arts are available less often, and frequently expected to serve economic, rather than transformative, purposes. This presentation will explore the dimensions of teaching as justice work, offer examples in art education, and propose queering our pedagogies to save public schools.

Therese Quinn is an Associate Professor of Art Education at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
