Activist Art in Social Justice Pedagogy

Engaging Students in Glocal Issues Through the Arts, Revised Edition

Series:

Edited by Barbara Beyerbach, R. Deborah Davis and Tania Ramalho

Artists have always had a role in imagining a more socially just, inclusive world—many have devoted their lives to realizing this possibility. In a culture ever more embedded in performance and the visual, examining the role of arts in multicultural teaching for social justice is a timely focus. In Activist Art in Social Justice Pedagogy approaches to using activist art to teach a multicultural curriculum are examined and critiqued. Examples of activist artists and their strategies illustrate how study of and engagement in activist art processes glocally—connecting local and global issues—can deepen critical literacy and commitment to social justice. This book is relevant to those (1) interested in teaching more about artist/activist social movements around the globe, (2) preparing pre-service teachers to teach for social justice, (3) concerned about learning how to engage diverse learners through the arts, (4) teaching courses related to arts-based multicultural education, critical literacy, and culturally relevant teaching. As we think more broadly we address the question "why does a ‘social justice through the arts in education’ approach make sense"; describe examples of preservice teacher assignments examining artists’ roles in activist movements, promoting multicultural understanding and social justice; and share approaches to and examples of using the arts in the United States and abroad to deepen multicultural comprehension and teaching for social justice.

His narrative scholarship might reflect the same mission—for social justice, for inclusion, and for the salience of humanity—that has been detectable throughout his career. But the transposition of long-held beliefs and values to this particular field of study also articulates his awareness that the strategic response to these forces will require

in this section construct, control or even oppress the Other, revealing broader concerns about the social and political order and national identity. At the same time, the enquiry of the Other’s pres- ence in these narratives complicates the question of justice in the history of law. In “Outlaw or Above the Law? Legal Issues in William Harrison’s Descrip- tion of England,” Kinga Földváry reveals how legality in early modern England often fails to confront social inequalities thus casting the underprivileged in the position of Other to the law.

agency in circumstances of vulnerability.
