Call for papers on the theme: The Politization of Education (submission deadline September 1, 2023)

The journal of Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis (formerly Analytic Teaching) seeks article submissions that explore the pervasive intrusion of political concerns across the landscape of education, from elementary school classrooms to college campuses.  Although politics has always shaped our educational institutions and policies, responsible pedagogical practice once worked to limit the explicit politization of the classroom. Is such neutrality even possible in our current climate, or should it be?     

Possible topics for consideration include but are not limited to: 

  • Is Philosophy for/with Children (P4wC) politically neutral? Should P4wC be politically neutral?
  • Can education be separated from politics?   
  • Can concepts in political philosophy be explored without creating political polarization or alienation?
  • How is the political and politics best defined?
  • How much authority should regulatory agencies have on the content of education? 
  • Can a liberal arts education be politically neutral?  
  • Should teachers try and limit the intrusion of political concerns in their classroom? 
  • How do private educational institutions balance their larger religious/ideological 
  • How should one deal with political polarization in the classroom or across campus?  
  • Can a well-rounded science education (or history or religious studies or women’s literature, etc…) be politically neutral? 
  • What is the ethical responsibility of educators and administrators to the overt 
    politicization of education?

    Direct submissions to: Dr. Jason J. Howard, Editor, Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis, email: [email protected]  (under the subject heading ‘2023 CFP’)  

    Submissions should follow a standardized reference format (Chicago manual of style- format references as endnotes or APA or MLA).  Articles should be approximately 4000-8000 words, emailed as a word document or RTF, and prepared for ‘blind-review’ (with author’s name and institutional affiliation appearing on a separate page).

    The deadline for article submissions is September 1st, 2023.  Accepted articles will appear in the fall (2023) volume of Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis
