ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
The research group of the Public University of Navarre, EDARTE, announces the first International Symposium “mor thN img cnsmrs. Mapping and evaluating research on Visual Culture youth producers” which will take place in Pamplona on November 22-23, 2013.
Since 2010, EDARTE is developing the research project “Young People as Visual Culture Producers: Artistic Skills and Knowledge in Secondary Education” (EDU 2009-13712). Now, in the final stage of this study, we’ve considered necessary to organize a scientific encounter to share the results of our investigation with other international research groups that have worked on this field of study.
This meeting pursues a triple objective: First, to disseminate different studies on youth as visual culture producers that have been developed in the last five years in different parts of the world. Second, to enable the creation of a map of this area of study that will contribute to structure the field of research with other experts. Finally, to evaluate our own research project, its goals, its methods and results, comparing them with those obtained by the participant groups in their researches.
As we have explained, this is a meeting of invited experts, not open to paper submissions from other researchers. However, the participation of those people who want to join us in the symposium will be welcomed, especially in the debates that will take place after each of the presentations.
The debates will focus on the following questions:
Ethical and academic concerns in the research of/with the youth as VC producers.
Media education and the VC production of the youth.
Art education and VC in relation with the production of young people.
Museums as out-school settings in relation with the VC production of the youth.
Youth digital production and VC.
Skills/knowledges/saviors of young people.
School learning/researching experiences in relation with the production of VC
The studies to be presented in the talks have been selected for their scientific rigor and its relevance to the fields of education, arts, youth, or information technologies.
