Teaching Disability



    TRANSFORMATIONS: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy 
    Sarah Chinn, Guest Editor 

    Deadline (extended) to: August 15, 2014

    The editors 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 disability.

    Submissions should explore strategies for teaching about disability 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.
