I know many of us hope that we create welcoming, hospitable environments for our students. That we, in some small way, encourage a space for community building and critical citizenship. Yet, we begin our semesters with the “reading” of an often woefully inhospitable and prescriptive document written in vaguely performative “legalese”—THE SYLLABUS. The syllabus is more than a mere delineation of our classes’ rules, regulations, policies, and procedures—though, these elements of the syllabus are important, to be sure. The syllabus is our students’ first experience of us as educators. This document represents us as educators nearly as much as the texts we chose to assign, the assessment portfolios we design, and the selves we share with our students.
Call for Papers
Popular Culture Review Special Issue - Popular Culture and COVID
The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.
For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.
Popular Culture Review seeks to publish compelling, well-argued, and well-researched articles on a variety of topics related to popular culture.
Submissions undergo a rigorous peer review process.
General Issues are published in March. Submissions must be received by January 10th for that year's General Issue.
