Abstract: 

New Zealand is a young country with a comparatively recent history. Jill is an experienced tertiary teacher educator and researcher in the field of secondary school art and art history. Postgraduate student Cathy is a specialist art teacher in the primary sector and has recently taken her first steps in research. Although their teaching background differ, both have shown in their respective studies that New Zealand's political history is a key factor in shaping primary and secondary school art education. In this paper Jill and Cathy explain their interest in historical research, how they use historical methodology and their conclusions about the relationship between politics and art education.
