CFP Deadline: Nov. 15, Special Issue, Teaching and Religion

The editors of TRANSFORMATIONS: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy seek articles (5,000-10,000 words) and media essays (overviews on books, film, video, performance, art, music, websites, etc. 3,000 to 5,000 words), and items for the “Material Culture of Teaching” section, that explore teaching and religion. This issue will be guest edited by Kristi Upson-Saia.

Submissions should explore strategies for teaching about religion in the classroom and in non-traditional spaces (such as the media and public discourse). We welcome jargon-free essays from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
