Contingencies: A Journal of Global Pedagogy

An open access, peer-reviewed journal published under a Creative Commons license.

First issue to be published in Fall, 2020. Hosted by NYU Liberal Studies.

As higher education has developed into a global enterprise, the classroom has become a site where learning cultures intersect, with students and faculty circulating in a multi-cultural and multi-national network of texts, locations, and educational approaches. The Western academy’s traditional modes of teaching are inadequate for today’s higher education context; the mission of Contingencies is to provide a space for the humanistic discussion of new practical and theoretical models for curriculum, pedagogy, and disciplinarity in a global context.
