Special Issue: Teaching Anthropology in Uncertain Times (Deadline for submissions: April 30th 2017)

This special issue will explore how we teach and prepare students for futures defined by uncertainty, dislocation and rupture. Paper are invited on:

Uncertainty: What futures are we teaching anthropology for, and how? What are the pedagogic challenges of engaging secondary school, undergraduate and graduate students in conceptualising and preparing for uncertainty?

Rupture: When and how should we disrupt or challenge disciplinary pedagogies? What is at stake in advocating radically new ways of learning and teaching? Do these new pedagogies approaches offer opportunities for reimagining anthropology?

Stewardship: What disciplinary legacies should teachers nurture and protect, and why?

Please see the Submissions page for more detailed information about submission guidelines or to contact the editors.
