CPP — Teaching Disability (Transformations special issue)



TRANSFORMATIONS: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy

Deadline: August 15, 2014

Sarah Chinn, Guest Editor

The editors 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 the “Material Culture of Teaching” section, that explore teaching disability. This issue will be guest edited by Sarah Chinn.

Submissions should explore strategies for teaching about disability in the classroom and in non-traditional spaces (such as the media and public discourse). We welcome jargon-free essays from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Transformations is a peer-reviewed semi-annual journal published by New Jersey City University which invites college teachers to take pedagogy seriously as a topic of scholarly articles.

Transformations publishes only essays that focus on pedagogy.
