Educational Anthropologists Respond:
The 2016 Presidential Election & The New Administration
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—especially in light of the new administration’s actions in the first 100 days.
We invite scholarly, creative, and artistic works that respond to the question: What does the 2016 presidential election—and the new political era it has ushered in the United States, and around the globe—mean for the Council on Anthropology of Education (CAE) as a body, for the intellectual field of educational anthropology, and for scholars/activists/educators working with targeted populations? 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 nonfiction
• Op-ed style essays
• Visual art
• Black and white photography
• Performance auto-ethnography
• Scholarly essays
Written submissions should be less than 5000 words—and shorter pieces are also acceptable. All submissions, including creative material, will be sent out for blind review.
Deadline: April 1, 2017
