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.

For an upcoming special issue of Studies in the Novel, I seek critical
studies of novels since the mid-20th century dealing with terror or

high-tech context. All analyses of contemporary novels (or fiction by

global village" are welcome, as are theoretical considerations of terror
(and horror?) in the postmodern age, as opposed to their pre-nuclear (or
pre-9/11) conceptualizations. Analyses of novels whose themes include
intra-state terrorism inflicted upon ethnic and sexual minorities are
also sought.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The United States through the Prism of American and British Popular Music.

For over a century and in modes ranging from hagiography to protest, popular
music has been a prime theatre of observation and representations of the
United States on record, in concert and more generally in the performing
arts. Studying this field, with its senders-artists and their
productions-and its receivers-gatekeepers and audiences-could enable us to
cast a different light on the USA as a source of inspiration, rejection and
attraction for musicians on both sides of the Atlantic in order to explore
certain visions of that country, or at least to examine some of the forces
that shape and/or distort it.
