About this book

This collection of articles by Susan W. Stinson, organized thematically and chronologically by the author, reveals the evolution of the field of arts education in general and dance education in particular, through narrative and critical reflections by this unique scholar and a few co-authors. It also includes contextual insights not available elsewhere. The author's pioneering embodied research work in arts and dance education continues to be relevant to researchers today. The selected chapters and articles were predominantly previously published in a variety of journals, conference proceedings and books between 1985 and the present. Each section is preceded by an introduction and the author has written a post scriptum for each article to offer a commentary or response to the article from the current perspective.

Reviews

“Stinson pairs a treasury of her contributions to dance education research with personal reflections on her practice as a dance education researcher … . Emerging and established dance educators, dance education researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students invested in dance education would benefit from reading this book. Stinson’s expertise and passion is evident on each page, and her willingness to question dance education, as well as herself, will inspire dance educators and dance education researchers regardless of their career trajectory.” (Karen Schupp, Journal of Cleaner Production, Vol. 17 (2), April, 2017)

“Embodied curriculum theory and research in arts education: a dance scholar’s search for meaning brings together a collection of essays by internationally renowned dance educator, Susan Stinson. … It will appeal to researchers, teachers and students, and it promises to be an important text for dance educators at all levels. … this is an impressive body of work. It represents some of the most original theory-in-practice and rigorous research-in-action in the field of dance education.” (Edward C. Warburton, Research in Dance Education, February, 2017)

“This book is a treasure – a collection of significant and insightful works by an outstanding scholar in our international community of practitioner-researchers in dance and arts education. … I recommend this book as essential reading for critical dance researchers engaged in ‘western’ higher education and as an appropriate textbook for graduate students in dance pedagogy and curriculum. … I acknowledge Sue’s substantial contribution and fine scholarship, shared with love and personal commitment to enhancing embodied research.” (Karen N. Barbour, International Journal of Education & the Arts, ijea.org, Vol. 17 (1), November, 2016)p>
