This issue of Radical Teacher focuses on teaching about capitalism, war, and empire. The issue's contributors explore the work of progressive educators who are using pedagogical innovations to help students to connect the dots between the interests of capitalism’s global elite, corporate lobbyists, government spending, military contractors, increased wealth and income inequality, processes of racialization, and the militarization and surveillance of everyday life; the military on campus.
Call for Papers: Radicalizing the Liberal Arts: Confronting Race, Racism, and Power in Small College Settings
Radical Teacher is seeking articles that discuss the intersections between Small Liberal Arts Colleges (SLACs) and movements for racial justice. Some liberal arts colleges are bastions of radical teaching, pedagogy, and commitment to confronting racism and power. Historically, liberal arts colleges have served as spaces of specialized learning and innovative pedagogy, which can extend towards the pedagogy of racial liberation. Some small liberal arts colleges have created academic centers that articulate their commitment to diversity, inclusion, and social justice both on and off campus, such as the Carter G. Woodson Center for Interracial Education at Berea College.
