This collection of 14 essays by 11 different authors demonstrates the increasing breadth of enquiry that has taken place in the history of art and design education over the past two decades, and the expanding range of research models applied to the subject. The essays are grouped into 6 sections that propose the emergence of genres of research in the field: drawing from examples; motives and rationales for public art and design education in Britain; features of institutional art and design education; towards art and design education as a profession; pivotal figures in the history of art and design education and British/European influence in art and design education abroad. The rich diversity of subject matter covered by the essays is contained broadly within the period 1800 to the middle decades of the twentieth century.
