Caucus of Social Theory in Art Education
Established in 1982, CSTAE is an affiliate of the National Art Education Association that seeks to promote the use of theoretical concepts from the social sciences; to study visual culture and the teaching of art; to inform art educators about theory and practice in the social sciences, thus acting as a liaison between social scientists and art educators; to encourage research into the social context of visual culture and teaching art; and to develop socially relevant programs for use in teaching art.
