Professor Bresler’s interdisciplinary work focuses on the arts and qualitative research methodology. In her various editorship roles in books and special issues of academic journals, she has sought to bring together intellectual communities across arts disciplines and cultures to address key areas, for example, early childhood, curriculum and cultural context in her co-edited book, The Arts in Children’s Lives (Bresler & Thompson, 2002; Kluwer); and embodiment in education in her book Knowing Bodies, Moving Mind, (Bresler, 2004, Kluwer).
Establishing new venues for interaction across disciplinary borders, Bresler founded, with Tom Barone and Gene Glass, the International Journal of Education and the Arts (2000-), and has established a book series for Springer that encompasses the various arts education domains (2002-present).
Visiting professorships include the Hedda Anderson Professorship at Lund University (2011-2015); Stockholm University (2008-2010); Professor II at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (2007-present); and Honorary Professor at the Hong Kong Institute of Education (2009-present).
