Call for Papers: Risk-Taking

University of the Arts London is calling for papers to include in the next edition of their book Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education (deadline 15 October 2018)

In Art and Design education we encourage our students to take risks. The idea of risk-taking is highly valued in art and design education and yet there have not been many articles in the journal Art, Design & Communication in Higher Education that explore scholarship and practice in relation to this key concept.

ADCHE are keen to explore this theme in future editions of the journal and would like to actively encourage prospective authors to respond to this invitation.

  • Have you carried out research that explores pedagogies that support risk taking?
  • Have you interviewed students about their understandings of risk taking and how it supports their creative development?
  • Are you keen to critique the concept of risk taking and challenge its hegemonic position in the art school?

If this invitation is of interest to you please submit a paper for our upcoming volume 18.1 (2019)
Deadline: 15 October 2018
