No rational field of study or practice would choose to occupy organizational or social margins. Or would it? Adult educators increasingly risk and resist being placed at the margins of academic and other organizations. This volume argues that depending on how those margins are defined, margins can be a place of creativity and power from which to examine and challenge domincant ideology and practice.Â Chapters explore advances and effective practices being made in the margins of adult education from several perspectives including community-based programs, interreligious learning, human resource development, African-American underrrepresentation in the academy, and degree granting adult education programs.Â Other areas explored include an interdiciplinary Web-based patient education research program and educational focus on citizenship and public responsibility skills. This volume moves beyond the traditional definition of the margin as a power- and resource-poor position in which individuals are relegated to supporting roles and demonstrates how to embrace, expand, and blend the margins of adult education by collaborating with others to influence the mainstream. This is the 104th issue of the Jossey-Bass quarterly series New Directions forÂ Adult and Continuing Education.Â

"Creative expression in later life can be linked directly to successful aging. Beginning with theoretical models of creativity and life-span development, the contributors examine the factors that influence creative exploration: environmental, social, gender, cognitive, and personality. New theories on creative productivity in late life are presented which suggest that the potential for creativity is present in many older adults." "Using longitudinal studies and qualitative interviews, the contributors look at the role creativity plays in the lives of elders, and the way that creativity aids in the adaptation to physical aspects of aging, problem-solving, and life reminiscing." "A variety of viewpoints are presented from the perspectives of cognitive aging researchers, creativity researchers, and experts in a variety of creative domains. This text is a useful addition to courses in hermeneutics and critical gerontology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The political landscape of adult education is a rough terrain, made more so by the decisions and issues in adult education practice that are inherently political. Adult educators often grapple with but do not necessarily give voice to the range of political issues and power struggles that frame practice. In recognition of the reality that adult educators interact among competing interests and power in their day to day practice, this volume aims to make more visable what is known but not discussed: the politics of the work of adult education. Grounded in both theory and practice, this volume identifies key political issues within adult education and suggests strategies for reflection and action. The chapters address the examination and negotiation of the political aspects of higher education, adult educators in K-12-focussed colleges of education, literacy education, social welfare reform, professional organizations, and identity of the field. This volume will aid adult educators in reflecting on and sharing the political challenges they confront in their everyday practice of adult education.
