Special Issue: Philip Roth's America

For an upcoming special issue of _Studies in American Jewish Literature_
(slotted for 2004), I am seeking critical essays devoted to Philip
Roth's recent exploration of American life in the last half of the
20th-century. This "American trilogy," as it has been called by his
publisher, includes the novels _American Pastoral_, _I Married a
Communist_, and _The Human Stain_. Consideration may also be given to
essays focusing on his other later works, such as _Sabbath's Theatre_
and _The Dying Animal_, but ONLY as they relate to Roth's recent
socio-historical articulation of American identity. Topics for
consideration might include:

RADICAL TEACHER CALLS FOR ARTICLES ON THE PRESENT CONDITION OF PROGRESSIVE
EDUCATION, ITS PAST, AND ITS FUTURE

A movement that called itself “progressive education” took shape more than
100 years ago, with an ideal of self-actualizing learners defining their
environment that mirrored the liberal political ideal. In the 1960s,
progressive approaches reappeared (though not under the same name), again
promising democratic and emancipatory learning. Today’s constructivists,
too, assert that student-centered learning foreshadows democratic living.
