Marxian Analysis of Society, School and Education SIG #157

CALL FOR PAPERS

AERA 2013

The global financial crisis detonated in the West in 2007 has highlighted long-standing structural faults within capitalism, especially in its financialization of the economy – something that Marx and his predecessors already predicted. The current economic genocidal policies in nations such as Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Cyprus, along with the bailouts to specific US corporations, and the slow down of China’s ‘new economy’, present a credibility check in the recognition of the predatory policies and practices of capitalism’s third hegemonic momentum. In fact such financialization of the economy, with its the recurrent and increasingly devastating financial debacles assailing the world’s capitalist economies, has been incapable of producing sustainable growth in any sector while creating economic genocide, and has resulted in driving societies towards social foreclosures strong-armed through painful strangulation of austerity policies that are asphyxiating public institutions and transforming the very notion of public good and democracy itself!

The 2013 Marxian Analysis of Society, School and Education SIG program asks scholars, educators and graduate students around the globe who are profoundly committed to the struggle for social and cognitive justice to help us examine the transformative role of education and schools in addressing the contemporary crises, as well as, addressing the role of educators in helping to resolve the contradictions of the present and to contribute to a better future for schools, education and society.

Therefore, we ask scholars, educators and graduate students to contribute papers, posters or symposium that utilize a Marxist/Class analysis that will critically address the impact of the late capitalism’s financialization of the economy on questions of schools, education and society and how to move from pre-history to history proper to create a more and just democratic society and education.

Note: All submissions will be reviewed without author identification.

Please submit them without author names on the abstracts or summaries.

Proposals that bear the names of the authors and/or participants will not be considered for review and, consequently, will not be considered for the SIG #157 program for the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting.

Thank You, Dr. Sheila Macrine, 2013 Program Chair

Reviews:

“An extraordinary emancipatory work: bravely negotiating the globalized toxic ruins of neo-liberalism. This is a liberatory project that embraces building a more just and democratic social world, transforming the ashes of oppressive pedagogical practices into a universe of critical and creative revolutionary possibility.”–Karen Anijar, Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University

“This volume provides both a much-needed political and economic critique of the dominant neoliberal reforms in the economy and education, and a theoretical and pedagogical path towards a democratic society and schools. I commend the contributors for their intellectual and political courage.”–David Hursh, University of Rochester, and author of High-Stakes Testing and the Decline of Teaching and Learning

An Afterword by Gustavo Fischman

Praise for Critical Pedagogy in Uncertain Times

“The contributors in this volume simultaneously provide conceptually sophisticated and pragmatic tools to pursue the construction of pedagogies of freedom where commitment to justice and fairness is encouraged, where respecting different perspectives on sciences and arts is stimulated, where disagreement is not punished, where caring for the other and a desire to know is celebrated, and where a passion for democracy and creating fair and inclusive futures is welcomed.” Foreword by Gustavo Fischman, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, Arizona State University

“At a time when the ruinous results of dominant neo-liberal policies are becoming increasingly clear, Critical Pedagogy in Uncertain Times offers the activist educator a cogent analysis of recent educational trends as well as useful suggestions for finding a way forward.”–Patricia H. Hinchey, Associate Professor of Education, Penn State University

“When education is increasingly reduced to test scores, this book reminds us what education can be for and how pedagogy can be practiced. The authors’ critique of the present system and description of what might be will strengthen the reader in working for a democratic society and schools.”–David Hursh, Associate Professor, University of Rochester

Dr. Sheila Macrine is an Associate Professor in the Curriculum and Teaching Department at Montclair State University in New Jersey.
