Call for Manuscripts

Theme Issue 86: Volume #3, October 2022

The Educational Forum is seeking articles for its Fall 2022 themed issue: Exploring intersections: Creating complex spaces for how our identities come to know and be known in classrooms and research.

The work of Kimberlé Crenshaw on intersectionality has had profound implications for how we talk about race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability in our work as educators and researchers. We have come to understand that it is insufficient and damaging to speak only of “feminism,” for example, without understanding how issues of race, class, sexuality, and ability may profoundly alter our notion of what feminism is and does. In this special issue, we take up the overarching question, “What does intersectionality look like in your teaching/research?”

We invite authors to creatively explore the notion of intersectionality in theory and in practice to investigate questions such as: How do you use an intersectional lens in your teaching and research? How does it get taken up? Why use these theories? How do they enhance your teaching or your research? What do they offer the field of education? We suggest authors take up and explore a variety of intersectional lenses such as Critical Race Theory, Queer Theory, Poststructural Feminism, Marxism, and Disabilities Studies or a combination of theories.

These questions suggest topic areas but are not exhaustive. We encourage submissions not only from scholars and researchers, but also from students, teachers, artists, parents, and community organizers.

We invite authors to push the boundaries and constraints of traditional academic writing in their submissions, to be playful, authentic, and creative in their writing. We welcome research that is arts-based, autobiographical, ethnographic, autoethnographic, collaborative, or phenomenological. Besides traditional submissions, we will also consider a variety of genres for this issue including scripts, comics, poems, song lyrics, fictional narratives, photographic images, personal memoirs, links to videos, or manuscripts that combine genres.
