About this book


This edited volume provides a venue for scholars whose work challenges the typical, static conceptions and methods of studying creativity.  More specifically, the book serves as an effort to introduce more dynamic definitions, conceptions, and approaches for studying creativity in the context of educational practice.  By doing so, it feeds the strong contemporary need for more dynamic conceptions of creativity in educational settings.  This is particularly important given the fast evolution of modern society and the widespread consensus that efforts to develop creative potential should be democratized -- extending well beyond the boundaries of the gifted subset and the walls of the classroom.  This work recognizes that more dynamic perspectives on creativity are necessary for understanding its complexity, value, and meaning in educational contexts.
