Resource Directory for Diversity Practices
About the Directory
The Resource Directory for Diversity Practices, compiled by the Committee on Diversity Practices, provides a range of materials that is useful for incorporating issues about diversity in its various forms into the classroom.
The Resource Directory for Diversity Practices is divided into five sections:
- Getting Started
- Classroom and Curricula
- Diversity in Academe
- Images and Documents of Art and Culture
The Committee on Diversity Practices invites submissions of syllabi, bibliographies, internet links, databases, assessment materials, pedagogic activities and exercises, and other relevant documents to post in its Diversity Resource Directory in order to assist others in searching and utilizing materials on diversity and/or to expand the breadth of the art field beyond Europe and North America. Notions of diversity encompass but are not limited to: race, ethnicity, nationality, sex, gender, sexual orientation, creed, age, class, political views, veteran status, and physical challenges. Please use this form to submit a resource.
Toward a Bibliography for a Culturally Inclusive Art History
The Committee on Diversity Practices decided to discontinue the online “Bibliography for a Culturally Inclusive Art History,” which is no longer current; it will be retained on the CAA website only as a document of historical record.
The American Alliance of Museums also has information and resources on diversity issues.
Our deepest thanks go to Annika Marie for her meticulous research and inputting on this project. The panel at the CAA Annual Conference in San Antonio, “Toward a Culturally Inclusive Art Community and Art History,” moderated by Michi Itami and Moira Roth with three panelists (Sutapa Biswas, Theresa Harlan, Lucy R. Lippard), was cosponsored by the Committee on Cultural Diversity and the Education Committee.
As part of the planning of the panel, we asked members of the Committee on Cultural Diversity and the session panelists to contribute some ten items each to the following bibliography. This bibliography should be read not as complete or exhaustive, but rather as a beginning study with the personal viewpoints of the people concerned.
The following people contributed bibliographical suggestions, and we have indicated their names after each citation: Sutapa Biswas, Lynette Bosch, William Charland, Kenneth Sean Golden, Theresa Harlan, Michi Itami, Mame Jackson, Arturo Lindsay, Lucy R. Lippard, Nancy Macko, Moira Roth, W. Jackson Rushing, and Victor Alejandro Sorell.
