Schulte, Christopher M. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2015
Invoking Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's configuration of minor literature, the author of this case study theorizes the drawing practice of a young boy (Carter) as a process of becoming-minor. Critical to this theorization is the creation and activation of a semblance between Brent and Marjorie Wilson's (1977) treatment of the…

Patton, Ryan M. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2014

Garoian, Charles R. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2008
This article explores "prosthesis" as a metaphor of embodiment in art-based research to challenge the utopian myth of wholeness and normality in art and the human body. Bearing in mind the correspondences between amputated bodies and the cultural dislocations of art, I propose "prosthetic epistemology" and "prosthetic ontology" as embodied knowing…

Beittel, Kenneth R. – Studies in Art Education, 1979
Inquiry into teaching art has a compounded middle or language section, so that the researcher can dwell in common dialogue with the teacher who is doing the same with students. A rational-empirical scientific approach would disintegrate these truth and language conditions through its stance in methodology and quantifiable language. (Author/SJL)
