The International Society for Education through Art is seeking a Principal Editor for the International Journal of Education through Art

InSEA is seeking an energetic and committed Principal Editor for its highly regarded peer reviewed journal, the International Journal of Education through Art (IJEtA).

The Journal is interdisciplinary in its reflection of teaching and learning contexts and also in its representation of artistic approaches and practices. It provides a platform to question and evaluate ways art is produced, disseminated and interpreted across a diverse r ange of educational contexts. Formal and informal educational contexts, policy and practice, pedagogy, research, comparative education, and trans-cultural issues are all considered in order to disseminate research and raise debate in these areas.

Visions 2015
Shannon Silva launched the Visions Film Festival & Conference with a simple purpose: to provide undergrads the space to explore and express what film means to them. Visions is also unique as it is the first undergraduate festival to honor student research and writing in film alongside the best of student film production. This April 17, Visions will be going on its fifth iteration, providing undergraduate students the distinctive opportunity to exhibit their independent films and present papers.
 
A professor in the Film Studies Department at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, Silva has overseen the event for the past five years. “We started with just a small Film Festival open only to our UNCW film students,” Silva remembers. “That event took place on the opening day of the Cucalorus Annual Festival of Independent Film. It was such a success that we were able to create a full two-semester course--FST451: Visions Film Festival Management--and from the moment we opened up the call to outside film entries, we also opened the door to film scholarship.” 
 
Silva acknowledges the support of Intellect’s Film Matters, an international refereed journal publishing the best work being done by future film scholars worldwide. “I do believe that having Film Matters established in our department helped us to be able to launch both of these components at once.  Undergraduate scholarship was already something our department had a great respect and enthusiasm for, so it was an obvious and appropriate combination.”
 
Though film blogs and online scholarship are at an all-time high, Silva remains steadfast in the unique opportunities that Visions provides. “There is so little opportunity for student scholars to get out in the world and practice presenting their work,” says Silva. “We're a safe, friendly, open place for students to share their work, get feedback, reflect and grow as writers.”
 

Visions Film Festival and Conference will run on April 17 in the Lumina Theater at UNCW.  For more information, check out Visionsfilm.org.
