Call for Manuscripts

The Journal for Learning through the Arts (JLtA) is a peer-reviewed online journal published by the Center for Learning through the Arts at the University of California, Irvine. It provides a forum for discussion for all aspects of learning that focus on or integrate the visual and performing arts in K-12, community, or higher education

Submissions are invited from university faculty, researchers, teaching artists, and school district personnel who have explored the link between learning and the arts through deliberate and disciplined integration of the arts (1) across arts disciplines, (2) with other academic content areas, and/or (3) into community-based educational
programs. Articles discuss theory and practice, highlight current research, and review teaching and professional materials of interest to language arts educators.

Submission Deadline May 1, 2008

We¹re interested in how experience of the arts is mediated by technology. What are the advantages, and drawbacks, of preserving live performance through audio and/or audio recordings? How has technology affected the museum or concert experience? What art forms have come into being that would not be possible without technology? In what ways do virtual communities create new venues for artists to interact with audiences? With the explosion of digital arts resources, how do
educators maximize their potential for enhancing student learning? What new opportunities have opened up for students to share their creative activities with others?
