    Laban Studies: Pedagogy in Theory and Practice

The Journal of Movement Arts Literacy is now accepting submissions. Deadline for paper submission is 1st October 2015.

Today’s Laban-focused movement educators enter a field filled with multiple challenges and diverse needs; however, movement literacy has become more recognized as a boon to dance/movement education as internationally recognized teacher standards increasingly support pedagogical values linked to movement literacy practices and movement-based notation and analysis systems supporting cognitive learning, language fluency, aesthetic expression, creativity, motor learning, reflection, critical analysis, cultural understanding, focused research, learning transfer, and cultural valuing, to name a few.

In this Special Issue, we are interested in pedagogical practices surrounding any and all Laban-based studies. Articles may focus on, but not be limited to, the following:

  • What are best practices to introduce learners to frameworks, practical discussion of Laban Studies curricula?
  • What theoretical, philosophical, and epistemological perspectives guide pedagogical practices in Laban Studies today? Has the scope changed over time and place?
  • Where, in the diverse spectrum of dance/movement training, education, performance, research, and critical studies, does Laban Studies pedagogy support learners?
  • What are current best practices in Laban Studies pedagogy and how do these practices foster teacher and student engagement with exploring, creating, reflecting, analyzing, communicating, and teaching with these movement-based theory systems?
  • How does one frame, develop, and refine pedagogical practices in Laban Studies?
  • What are the disciplinary and/or institutional influences at work determining one’s pedagogy and pedagogical research in the field of Laban Studies?
  • How do differing pedagogical approaches (e.g., programmed learning, social-constructivist learning, active learning, problem-based learning, peer-led learning, etc.) inform Laban Studies education practices and theories?

While flexible in length, we seek contributions of approximately 4,000 words for Forum Articles or Practitioner’s Perspectives articles to 8,000 words for Feature Articles. JMAL accepts video clips.

Journal of Movement Arts Literacy is an international, peer reviewed, open-access academic publication that serves to promote the scholarly study of movement arts literacy (using notation, symbolic representation, and critical analysis) for the purposes of supporting development of pedagogy, theory, application, practice, and research of human movement. Focus on movement is especially aimed toward, but not limited to, inquiry into aesthetic, scientific, and cultural understanding of movement arts using movement-based literacy. For more details about movement arts literacy, see Aims and Scope.
