Call for Papers: Spring 2018

We at the Canadian Journal for New Scholars in Education support the educational researchers and educators who are committed to anti-oppressive work, which criticizes the ways power is used and abused against those who are minoritized. As such, our Call for Papers for the Spring 2018 issue focuses on “Pedagogies of Resistance.”

In this issue, we wish to build on the ways educationalists can examine diverse educational spaces in such a way that encourages dialogue and action in an effort to do and be better. It is only through engaging in this work that we, as critical scholars of education, can strive for social and educational spaces where people of all ages and backgrounds feel valued, respected, and safe.
