New e-publication from the Jarislowsky Institute for Canadian Art
Guide to Studying the Visual Arts in Canada is an open source, free e-publication published by the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Canadian Art, Concordia University. The guide is co-edited by MA alumna Sharon Stride and Professor Emeritus Dr. Loren Lerner.
The objectives of the guide are to facilitate study and teaching; to encourage pedagogical innovation and research; to improve learning through the sharing of resources and exchange of information; to increase the availability, accessibility, and use of print and online resources; to provide resources beyond the reach of individual universities, libraries, archives, museums, and resource centres; and to stimulate the improvement of online resources and the production of new resources.
The Guide to Studying the Visual Arts in Canada is a snapshot of the field at this moment. The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art plans to update the Guide on a regular cycle, making it a basic tool for seasoned researchers, educators, and curators, as well as students who are curious about the visual arts in Canada, and how they might enrich their interdisciplinary studies.
Bringing established and emerging scholars into conversation, the Jarislowsky Institute for Canadian Art presents new ideas that are shaping the study of the visual arts in Canada.
