Call for Papers

Special Issue: "Insubordinate Space"

DEADLINE EXTENDED: September 15, 2022

For KALFOU’s 10th anniversary volume we seek to create a discussion about the meaning of political education in the context of deradicalization. Focused on social movements, social institutions, and social relations, the journal was founded as an “insubordinate space” to connect the specialized knowledge produced in academe to the situated knowledge generated in aggrieved communities. Accordingly, we invite submissions from scholars, artists, teachers, and activists exploring how sites of political education are created, undermined, and defended. We seek instantiations of possibility, accompaniment, and improvisation that call out forces of coercion and domination and call in opportunities for collaboration and transformation.
