Studia de Arte et Educatione
“Annales Universitatis Pedagogicae Cracoviensis. Studia de Arte et Educatione”, the Journal of the Faculty of Art of the Pedagogical University of Krakow, has been published by the Pedagogical University Press since 2005 as a peer-reviewed journal. Since 2011 it has been listed on the Ministerial list of rated academic magazines (4 points since 2013, 7 points since 2015). The international Editorial Board includes artists and researchers from Poland, Lithuania, Greece, Slovakia, the US, and Great Britain.
The journal favours interdisciplinarity, featuring texts in Polish and English on arts and other fields of the humanities. The journal’s main goal is to publish innovative research in the most relevant issues of art, primarily contemporary art, both traditional and new media-related, in the context of education. Articles in the journal address also problems of aesthetics and philosophy, literature, and broadly understood culture.
Each journal issue is focused on a particular topic. The first three issues addressed the most fundamental aspects that arise from the merging of art and education. The fourth issue was focused on the work of artists-teachers who operate in a variety of fields and disciplines of art (using their practical knowledge and experience). The next two issues addressed the question of the relationship between word and image and the use of this relationship in education, as well as the possibility of treating art works as statements. Featured texts concentrated on the ways to analyse and interpret art, addressed historical contexts and recent changes. The next, extended issue focused on the issue of identity – identity of art disciplines and of artworks, as well as identity of collectives and individuals, which are problems that provoke controversies in the era of “fluid” postmodernism and pose a challenge for artists and teachers. Another issue offered a reflection on the diversity of media used in art and teaching to address the problem of boundaries of disciplines in the context of new programmes at the Faculty of Art – Digital Design and Art and Media. A subsequent issue was a presentation of Polish artists who teach art and engage in cultural animation, which was related to the Faculty’s new programme in Cultural Animation, considering also the need for personal models for teachers and students as an essence of education process. Another issue focused on controversial terms, notions, and art practices within the recent examples of critical and socially engaged art and artworks in public space, a field that provides inspiration as well as challenges for objective assessment and teaching. The next issue addressed the treatment of artworks as cognitive tools, considering the problem of identity of art disciplines and works, posing controversial questions concerning art and philosophy, with the reference to the visual turn and cognitivism. The latest issue discussed visual culture as a discursive element of public space, addressing problems of socially engaged art.
The journal’s editorial team includes: Editor-in-chief, Professor Rafał Solewski (art historian and literary scholar), member of editorial board Professor Stanisław Sobolewski (painter and Polish literature scholar), secretary Dr. Bernadeta Stano (art historian and graduate of Artistic Education). Each issue is guest-edited by Faculty members as well as doctoral candidates. The journal publishes papers by artists and researchers from other faculties and universities. The journal works as a platform that brings together a variety of perspectives offered by researchers working in diverse fields and disciplines.
