Memory Mosaics: New Voices, Insights, Possibilities for Working with the Arts and Memory in Researching Teacher Professional Learning
“New Voices, Insights, Possibilities for Working with the Arts and Memory in Researching Teacher Professional Learning” begins with a prologue that tells a story of how the book editors—Kathleen Pithouse-Morgan, Daisy Pillay, and Claudia Mitchell—have engaged with their own learning, as well as with what the book can offer to others. The chapter goes on to retrace research connections between memory-work, the arts, and professional learning. Next, the book editors look back at their personal, professional, and scholarly connections as a way to signal their ongoing collaborations across Canada and South Africa. They also draw attention to political and social links between Canada and South Africa. Thereafter, the editors explain how each of the subsequent nine chapters was composed from juxtaposing several “mosaic” pieces written by 21 new and emerging scholars in South Africa and Canada. This is followed by a synopsis of each chapter. To conclude, the editors highlight the scholarly contributions of Memory Mosaics.
