We seek research-based articles on how teachers at all levels are experiencing and responding to the current climate of hostility toward education in the United States, and how attacks on teachers and teaching have been addressed currently and in the past, in the US and in other places. How and why are teachers “under attack” from, among other things, politicians, policy-makers, corporations, and particular discourses about education? This issue will shift attention from our usual focus on pedagogy to pay attention to the situation of teachers and teaching. We welcome jargon-free essays from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. Inquiries welcome.
The editors of Transformations seek articles (5,000-10,000 words) and media essays (overviews on books, film, video, performance, art, music, websites, etc. 3,000 to 5,000 words) and items for an occasional feature, “The Material Culture of Teaching,” which offer historical perspectives on pedagogy or examine material practices/artifacts of pedagogy.
