CFP: Special cluster on Secondary Education
Editors: Kara Crawford and Lisa Lampert-Weissig
Introducing students of all ages to the literature and culture of the Middle Ages is vital to our field and its future. We seek contributions from colleagues working in secondary education about their experiences, challenges, and successes. What are the structural support systems available for teaching medieval texts and contexts prior to college, and what are the needs for access to materials and training? How have recent conversations about canonicity – however construed – affected curricular decisions/choices aboutteaching medieval literature at the secondary level? How has the explosion of media formats and platforms impacted secondary student engagement with literature, especially linguistically challenging early texts? We seek essays of 1000-3000 words. We welcome collaborative work and innovation in format, such as interviews.
We are also accepting open topic submissions for this issue.
For consideration in the Fall 2022 issue of New Chaucer Studies: Pedagogy and Profession, please submit your contribution by 1 March 2022 to https://escholarship.org/uc/ncs_pedagogyandprofession.
