Editorial Reviews

Eleven case studies of art education illustrate that the translation of cultural knowledge is part of the process of conceptualizing, developing, and implementing curriculum. In looking at historical and cultural influences on art education in Japan, Australia, Canada, Spain, the US, Sweden, Brazil, Morocco, Britain, Hungary, and Chile, the authors emphasize ideas that have emerged in, or been transported to, the country and transformed in a new context.
