English Teaching, Practice and Critique
Special Issue: Youth Literacies and Social Justice

Abstract Submissions due July 15, 2015

For more information, please visit

Fifteen years into the new millennium. What’s different? What remains the same? In
what ways are youth engaging with literacy in their lives? How is literacy as a social
practice conceived and theorized in relation to social justice? In what ways are
young people talking back and speaking truth to power? What youth literacies have
emerged, and why do they matter?

With continual flows of information encouraged by new technologies, young people
around the world are engaging literacies in ways that demonstrate sophisticated civic
participation and creative production. Literacy practices at home, in school, and in
places in between have arguably become far more visible than ever, and many youth
are contributing to larger discourses and forms of action in their respective contexts.
These youth are increasingly putting their mark on the world despite contradictions
and challenges in politically austere times.

In this special issue, the editors invite trans-disciplinary perspectives on youth
literacies related to social justice. Work that engages with critical race, feminist,
queer, ethnic studies, and Indigenous frameworks are welcome. Topics may include,
but are not limited to, the following:

• Home, school, or community practices
• Digital technologies and participatory cultures
• Pedagogical possibilities across educational settings, inclusive of classroom
practice, research and policy implications
• Participatory work that involves youth in the research process as well as
collaborators and authors
• Youth community activism and community organizing

There will be two sections for consideration: article and creative. The article section
will feature conceptual or empirical papers. The creative section will feature youthproduced
work (poems, short essays, artworks with captions, and related material).
Submit an abstract no longer than 500 words (article section) or a brief
statement about ideas to (not Emerald) by
July 15, 2015.

Authors will be notified in mid-August. Full manuscripts of selected abstracts
as well as featured youth produced-work are due on November 1, 2015.
Special issue will be published in November/December 2016.

Please submit proposals electronically to on or
before midnightJune 30, 2015.

Proposal Overview

This year’s theme, Welcoming New Visions: Creating a Culture of
Holistic Education for Health, Well-Being and Social Justice, is
intentionally broad. We wish to encourage scholarship that takes a
fresh look at education from new and innovative perspectives on
personal and/or community levels – that explores aspects of democracy
and egalitarianism in formal and informal educational settings – that
expands the notion of learning beyond the walls of schools. In other
words, this conference aims to explore the distinct connection between
the ability to live a full and happy life and lived educational
experience. To that end, this year’s theme focuses specifically on
educational inquiry into how we become leaders in and custodians of
our communities, our classrooms, and our field. Further, OESA wishes
to engage in an open and honest conversation regarding the state of
urban public education and how its status is impacted by issues of
health, well being, and social justice. We want to explore current
activist and outreach programs that connect higher education to urban
public schools and the larger community while also envisioning future
projects that impact on schools in urban communities.

Proposal Guidelines

Call for Papers: Thresholds in Education

Thresholds in Education (ISSN 0196-9641)


Guest Editor:
John Petrovic, The University of Alabama

This special issue seeks to elaborate on two themes: the nature of
controversy and the use of controversial topics as pedagogy in
schools. Authors are free to engage the themes discretely or

On the Nature of Controversy
The “nature of controversy” refers to the question of how a topic is
deemed “controversial.” What does it mean to say something is
controversial? A criterion of numerosity (or behavioral criterion),
wherein a topic is deemed controversial simply because disagreement
attaches to it, is probably insufficient. How many people must
disagree? Must the disagreement be reasonable? Should we treat Nazism
as controversial because some people deny the holocaust?

Michael Hand, for example, argues that there are no reasonable
arguments against homosexuality and that it, therefore, should not be
approached as a controversial issue in schools, even as people
disagree. Hand defends what he calls the epistemic criterion, wherein
an issue cannot be held to be controversial if argument on one side or
the other is contrary to reason. Petrovic, however, defends a
political criterion by which controversy obtains when no answer to an
issue is entailed in the public values of the liberal democratic
state. What are the pedagogical implications here? Do we even need
determine philosophically the nature of controversy before discussing
pedagogical issues? Might the behavioral criterion be sufficient? Can
we assume, in other words, that any disagreement can promote the
development of the capacity for democratic deliberation and civic
engagement – presumably the raison d'etre of controversy as pedagogy?

Controversy as Pedagogy
Too often teachers consider the introduction of a controversial issue
as a method in and of itself under the assumption that it will
engender not only discussion but also thoughtful discussion. To
discuss controversy as pedagogy, we must consider a number of
interrelated questions: Are all controversial issues pedagogically
equal? Or, put another way, should all controversial issues be dealt
with in schools or can we determine that certain issues are more or
less educative or even miseducative than others or just too
controversial? Diana Hess, for example, rightly contemns that there
seems to be little support “for engaging young people in serious
discussions of policy and constitutional issues related to abortion.”
Given the very strong positions on both sides of such an issue, might
an issue be too controversial or the positions too far apart? Could
engagement with such an issue have “the effect of arresting or
distorting the growth of further experience,” as Dewey cautioned? What
happens to students who hold less popular or more radical views? Might
they not retreat and simply “dig in”? What happens to students who
really just don't know? Are they expected to take a position in the
end? Should students be allowed to be “positionless” always? If so,
how do their own values form and on what grounds do they engage in
democratic deliberation?

Having waded through such questions, how should we introduce
controversial issues in schools? What practices might best serve our
purpose in dealing with controversy in the first place? Is simple
debate among students enough? Are there guiding principles of such
debate that should be taught first and what are those? Might they too
be controversial? For example, must one really respect positions s/he
finds repugnant? How should such respect manifest? What should the
role of the teacher be? Should she seek to lead students to certain
understandings? If she holds that an issue about which there is
disagreement betrays the epistemic criterion or the political
criterion, shouldn't the pedagogy be leading?

Author Guidelines

Proposal Format
Please email a 500-1000 word, excluding references, proposal for
review in a word document to John Petrovic (contact information below)
by August 1, 2015. This proposal should include a list of key
references that will be utilized in the chapter, as well as 3-4
keywords. Also, please include a brief author bio (200 word limit) and
all relevant contact information.

Final Manuscript Formatting
• TIE accepts manuscripts of up to 10,000 words, including abstract,
list of keywords, appendices, footnotes and references, and reserves
the right to return any manuscript that exceeds that length.
• All text must be double-spaced; type size must be 12 point with
1-inch margins on all sides.
• Authors should refer to The Chicago Manual of Style for general
questions of style, grammar, punctuation, and form, and for footnotes
of theoretical, descriptive, or essay-like material.
• The journal defers to author preference in decisions about the
naming and capitalization of racial, ethnic, and cultural groups.

Convocatoria: Coloquio Internacional Más allá de los bordes y las fronteras: trasnacionalismo y creación

Convocatoria Coloquio Internacional
Más allá de los bordes y las fronteras: trasnacionalismo y creación
La Casa de las Américas, a través de su Programa de Estudios sobre Latinos en los Estados Unidos, convoca a su tercer Coloquio Internacional bajo la temática de Más allá de los bordes y las fronteras: trasnacionalismo y creación, del 13 al 15 de octubre de 2015. En esta ocasión el encuentro versará sobre la presencia e impacto de las migraciones transnacionales en la población latina en los Estados Unidos y sus procesos creativos en torno al arte, la literatura y el cine.

Se reflexionará acerca de la perspectiva del migrante como sujeto social y productor, gestor y creador cultural desde disímiles espacios geográfico-sociales y su inserción en las redes sociales de producción dentro y fuera de las fronteras espaciales.

Estas discusiones se construirán bajo la égida de la multilateralidad y el enfrentamiento a discursos discriminatorios, peyorativos y prejuiciosos que insisten en ver a esta población como amenazadora. El Coloquio, consecuente con la promesa de su edición anterior de provocar un espacio de acción con la presencia de personas de origen latinoamericano vinculadas a las artes, las letras y las ciencias sociales y humanísticas, mantiene la perspectiva de acción dirigida a los enlaces, redes, comunidades y gestores desde la trasnacionalidad cultural y migratoria.

Se proponen como ejes temáticos centrales los siguientes:
1. ¿Trasnacionalismo o trasnacionalidad? Debates sobre una conceptualización
2. Puntos de encuentro y socialización de imaginarios en la creación de latinos en los Estados Unidos
3. Redes sociales desde la producción artístico -literaria y cinematográfica
4. Ciudadanía transnacional étnica en el arte e industria cinematográfico de latinos en los Estados Unidos
5. Migrante colectivo transnacional: organizaciones e instituciones culturales de latinos

Los interesados podrán presentar ponencias individuales o paneles. En cualquiera de los dos casos deberán seguir las siguientes indicaciones:

- Antes del 20 de julio de 2015 deberá estar en nuestro poder un resumen de 250 palabras, con el título de la ponencia y el nombre y apellidos del/a autor/a y la institución a la que pertenece.

- La extensión de las ponencias no será mayor de 15 cuartillas mecanografiadas a doble espacio, lo que equivale a 20 minutos de lectura oral.

- Las/os participantes deberán traer junto con el texto impreso de su ponencia, en el que emplearán las normas internacionales para notas, citas y bibliografía, el texto en una memoria flash o un CD-ROM.

Position announcement: Vice President and Associate Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion & CDO, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC

Vice President and Associate Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion & CDO
Gallaudet University
Washington, DC
Gallaudet University invites applications for the position of Vice President and Associate Provost for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (VPAPEDI). The VPAPEDI will serve as the campus Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), aligned with a “hybrid” collaborative, unit-based, and portfolio style CDO leadership model.  The VPAPEDI position is a senior, cabinet-level position jointly reporting to the university President and Provost, and independently consulting with the Board of Trustees. In reporting to the President, the VPEDI will address staff and administrative concerns; in reporting to the Provost, the APEDI will engage student, faculty, curricular, and scholarship concerns. 
The ideal candidate for the VPAPEDI position will have excellent relational skills and bring renewed energy, fresh perspectives, and innovative ideas. The campus has prioritized hiring a community builder who can be described as open-minded, approachable, empathetic, having heart, flexible, a listener, adaptive, an ambassador, and collaborative, as well as courageous, resourceful, adept at conflict negotiation, action-oriented, and an advocate. 
Fluency in American Sign Language (ASL) and written English are strongly preferred. Willingness to work toward the development of ASL proficiency and English literacy within two years of assuming the VPAPEDI position is required. To facilitate this development, the university will provide the selectee intensive ASL and English literacy instruction and on-campus housing to create as close to a second language learning immersion experience as is possible.
The ideal candidate will possess a doctorate, with areas of primary expertise in diversity-related higher education leadership, multicultural organizational development, diversity training, social justice education, language learning, international relations, intergroup dialogue, cross-cultural counseling, and/or related fields.  She/he will also have an academic profile (including an established, relevant research agenda and success in collegiate teaching) worthy of tenure at the rank of associate or full professor. The candidate will also have demonstrated effective experience in: evidence-based decision making; budgeting; grant-making; staff supervision and management; policy development; equity compliance, mediation, conflict resolution, collective bargaining, and risk reduction; employee and student recruitment, retention, and programming; faculty, staff, and student development; public relations and marketing; purchasing and supplier diversity; multicultural curriculum development and implementation; and diversity-related assessment and evaluation. Candidates who can demonstrate competency in all twelve of the Standards of Professional Practice for Chief Diversity Officers (CDO) established by the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE) in 2014 (, but who may not possess all of the afore-referenced ideal candidate credentials will be considered.
The VPAPEDI must employ a walk around style of leadership in engaging with university stakeholder and constituent groups, both on and off campus. It is of paramount importance that the selectee makes herself/himself available to students, and is willing to dedicate time to interacting with students in the residence hall context, as well as during evening and weekend activities and events. 
The VPAPEDI position search will begin in April of 2015 and conclude in December of 2015. Applications/nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.  Screening of candidates will begin in August of 2015. Candidate finalists will be invited for campus interviews in November of 2015. The selected candidate will begin work at the outset of the Spring 2016 academic semester 
To apply, please submit a letter of interest that carefully addresses the afore-referenced qualifications for the position, along with a Curriculum Vitae or Résumé inclusive of the names and contact information for at least five references (at least one supervisory and one academic).
