In March of 2003 we sat huddled over the computer trying to make sense of the paper that we were trying to write on the obsolete body of art education for presentation at the National Art Education Association (NAEA) conference in Minneapolis. When we began the paper the war on Iraq had not yet begun but it was daily becoming more of a real possibility. The buzz about the impending war became a louder and louder as we lived and worked, not in an mythical ivory tower isolated from the world but in the midst of 24-7 media coverage of the imminent attack It became clear to us, as it did to most of the world, that it was no longer a question of whether we would attack Iraq but rather when we would do so.
