About the Speaker
(View Dr. Barone's CV)
Tom Barone is a Professor of Education at Arizona State University. Nearly 30 years ago, Barone’s dissertation at Stanford University investigated the possibilities of literary non-fiction for researching and writing about educational matters. Since then he has explored, conceptually and through examples, a variety of narrative and arts-based approaches to theorizing about and contextualizing significant educational issues. Barone is the author of Aesthetics, Politics, and Educational Inquiry: Essays and Examples and Touching Eternity: The Enduring Outcomes of Teaching. He is currently co-authoring a book with Elliot Eisner of Stanford University entitled Imagination and Method: Arts-Based Forms of Qualitative Research. Barone teaches courses in curriculum studies and qualitative research methods in the Arizona State University Mary Lou Fulton College of Education.
