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,” that explore popular culture in all pedagogical contexts and interdisciplinary perspectives.
