A Special Issue of Critical Studies in Improvisation / Études critiques en improvisation
A Special Issue of Critical Studies in Improvisation / Études critiques en improvisation – Just Improvisation: Enriching Law through Musical Techniques, Discourses, and Pedagogies, Vol. 12, No 1 (2017) is now available online.
This Special Issue is comprised of articles, comments and opinions, and an interview, ensuing from discussions at the “Just Improvisation” Symposium. This event brought together academic and non-academic participants, both local and international, from musical, legal, and social work backgrounds to explore the improvised creativity that is at the heart of legal decision-making, specifically as it applies to the area of child protection law.
We are particularly pleased that, before her death in November 2016, Pauline Oliveros agreed to have her keynote address, entitled “Safe to Play,” included in this volume. It is a beautiful treatise on the joy of “play”: play as improvisation and improvisation as play.
