Special Issue: Educational Anthropologists Respond to 2016 Presidential Election

At the 2016 AAA Annual Meeting, educational anthropologists engaged in many conversations about the 2016 presidential election and the new political era ushered in by its outcome. In formal meeting spaces, informal conversations, and paper sessions that spontaneously transformed into impromptu discussions, we talked about the outcome of the election and its implications for the children, families, communities and schools we work with as educational anthropologists.

The purpose of this special issue is to continue these conversations, to deepen them, and engage with wider audiences. We invite scholarly, creative, and artistic works that respond to the question: What does the 2016 presidential election mean for the Council on Anthropology of Education (CAE) as a body, for the intellectual field of educational anthropology, and for scholars/activists/educators with expertise in this area? What are the implications of this moment, and how can we respond?

We invite submissions from a variety of genres, including (but not limited to):

Creative Non-Fiction
Op-Ed Style Essays
Visual Art
Black and White Photography
Performance auto-ethnography
Scholarly Essays

Written submissions should be less than 2000 words. All submissions, including creative material, will be sent out for blind review.

Deadline: January 15, 2017.
