The Wow Factor

More than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative subjects or using creative ways to teach? In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Austral...

Education in Turkey

This book represents a major study of the development and present state of education in Turkey. Turkey offers a unique context for studying education because of the tensions that exist between secularization and Islam, top-down social engineering and democratization, and economic growth and social justice. Education in Turkey brings together some of the leading educationalists in Turkey, as well as a number of scholars from other disciplines. The topics covered include the development and structure of primary, secondary, vocational and adult education, the role of education in shaping citizenship and national identity, human capital, economic growth and educational inequalities. This significant volume will be of particular interest to policy makers as well as researchers and students in education, economics, politics, and Turkish studies.

Teenagers’ Perspectives on the Role of Religion in their Lives, Schools and Societies. A European Quantitative Study

Religion is on the European agenda again. The secularisation paradigm has lost its explanatory power and the newly coined term ‘post-secularism’ is used to describe the realisation that in the current social transformation, religion cannot be ignored any longer. The quantitative study presented in this book is part of the research effort by the REDCo project. REDCo is the abbreviation for “Religion in Education. A contribution to Dialogue or a Factor of Conflict in Transforming Societies of European Countries”. The project brought together nine research teams from eight European countries: England, Estonia, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Russia and Spain. The research invo...

New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century

This book is purposely and deliberately entitled New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century. It encapsulates the recent debate about the political and cultural role played by the New African intellectuals in developing modern African political thought. The authors argue that the "New African Intellectuals" was a culturally and politically dominant movement of the twentieth century, despite the fact that it was suppressed and oppressed by white colonialism and racism. It was a political and cultural expression of the oppressed and disposed people. During its cultural and political splay the "New African Intellectuals" was preoccupied with three insepa...
