Engaging the Critical in English Education

Approaches from the Commission on Social Justice in Teacher Education


Edited by Briana Asmus and Charles H. Gonzalez

The chapters in this collection explore the implementation of social justice pedagogies with preservice teachers by members of the Commission on Social Justice in Teacher Education; a group of teacher educators from across the country whose primary goal is to prepare teachers to use socially just models to reach all groups of students and to create a more equitable educational system. In this collection, each member/author presents a critical model of social justice teaching by considering the ways in which gender, race, class, and other intersections function in the classroom. Individually, authors enact critical models by interrogating inequitable systems of oppression in their own professional and pedagogical environments. Collectively, the chapters ask what thoughtful, participatory social justice pedagogy looks like in multidimensional pedagogical spaces. At all levels, this collection explores the rewards and challenges of social justice pedagogy within and outside of preservice teacher preparation programs influenced by a constantly shifting political landscape. Ultimately, this collection seeks to discover how ideas of social justice are conceptualized and understood by English educators and K-12 teachers.

As a possible approach to this question, the chapters in this collection support ELATE-SJ’s paradigm for advocacy. This paradigm includes three areas of enaction: research, scholarship, and action. Within these areas, members of the commission (authors) seek to better understand how preservice ELA teachers see themselves and others, to develop flexible teaching models grounded in social justice pedagogy (SJP), and to delineate opportunities for transformation, growth, and change in and through our profession.

Fahrzeugdiagnose und Erfahrung

Ein Kompetenzmodell zur Aufklärung beruflichen Diagnosehandelns

Tim Richter

Das Ziel von Kfz-Diagnosearbeit ist es, die Ursache(n) einer oder mehrerer Abweichung(en) vom Fahrzeug-Sollzustand zu identifizieren und zielführende Reparaturmaßnahmen zu definieren. Um das Wissen und Können der Kfz-Diagnoseexpertinnen und Kfz-Diagnoseexperten erschließen und die Erkenntnisse unter anderem für die Gestaltung von Lehr-Lern-Arrangements in der Berufsbildung nutzen zu können, wurde eine qualitative Untersuchung durchgeführt. Die Untersuchungsergebnisse zeigen, dass das Handeln der Kfz-Diagnoseexperten unterschiedlichen Diagnosestrategien folgt und sich das Erfahrungswissen bei der Störungsdiagnose an modernen Fahrzeugen als ein besonderes Potenzial und Vermögen der Kfz-Diagnoseexperten erweist. Aufbauend auf diesen Erkenntnissen wird ein Kompetenzmodell vorgestellt.

Histoires de famille et littérature de jeunesse / Family Stories and Children’s Literature

Filiation, transmission, réinvention ? / Parentage, Transmission or Reinvention?


Edited by Rose-May Pham Dinh and Virginie Douglas

Ce livre réexamine la représentation de la famille dans des romans, albums ou pièces de théâtre pour la jeunesse relevant de différentes aires géographiques, culturelles et linguistiques. Bienveillants ou aliénants, les liens tissés entre générations ou au sein de la fratrie conditionnent la construction des jeunes protagonistes. La littérature de jeunesse reflète la diversité de la famille et sa capacité à évoluer, voire à se réinventer (familles monoparentales ou homoparentales, recomposées, adoptives...). En proposant des modèles parfois éloignés des réalités connues des lecteurs, elle les invite à réévaluer leur propre expérience mais témoigne aussi d’une certaine constance des attentes et des interrogations que l’institution suscite.

This book re-examines the representation of the family in novels, picture books or theatre plays for young people, belonging to various geographical, cultural and linguistic areas.The bonds between generations or among siblings, whether benevolent or destructive, play a decisive part in the young protagonists’ development. Children’s literature is shown to reflect the diversity of the family as an institution and its ability to change or even to reinvent itself (single-parent, same-sex-parent, blended or adoptive families…). Its fictional representations of the family may differ from the realities experienced by the readers, and invites them to reconsider their own experiences, yet show expectations and questions related to family life to remain fairly constant.

Äußerungsrechtlicher Unternehmensschutz im Internet

Ein Rechtsvergleich des deutschen und chinesischen Zivilrechts


Feihu Zhang

Das Buch befasst sich mit der immer wichtiger werdenden Frage, wer für unternehmensschädigende Äußerungen im Internet dem Unternehmen gegenüber haftet und unter welchen Voraussetzungen. Der Autor untersucht die Rechtslage in Deutschland und China. Die Untersuchung zeigt, dass Deutschland dem Äußernden mehr Schutz im Falle des unternehmensbezogenen Äußerungsdelikts gewährt, während China dazu neigt, den Geschäftsruf des betroffenen Unternehmens in vergleichbaren Fällen zu schützen. Aufgrund der Untersuchung werden Reformvorschläge für das chinesische Recht erarbeitet.

Adolescent Fans

Practices, Discourses, Communities


Pilar Lacasa

Owing to the proliferation of screens and networked culture, young fans have moved beyond being simply media consumers. Today they are content interpreters and creators—living in a remix culture, reconstructing transmedia narratives, and interacting with culture industries. Young fans’ relationship to technology has transformed their discourses, interpersonal relationships, and the way they participate in communities. This book delves into these issues, looking at social and cultural approaches to human development to study the identities and activities of fan communities among young people. The book explores communities related to Harry Potter, One Direction, Fortnite, Warhammer, TikTok, and television programs. Drawing on an ethnographic approach and big data analysis, Adolescent Fans demonstrates how digital technology has changed not only fan behavior, but also research practices used to understand what it means to be a young fan.

Albert Hirschman's Legacy

Works and Discussions

Aziz Douai

Terrorism inspires intense emotions of fear, vulnerability, victimization, and helplessness that breed humiliation and shame and demands for redress by the victims—restoring the wounded honor through revenge and military action. The post-9/11 environment of the "global war on terrorism" has exacerbated these vicious cycles of conflict. It also created a media battleground in which conflating Islam with terrorism and deploying a religious lexicon of jihad, martyrdom, and sacrifice have become routine.

Yet, scholarship on the relationship between Arab media and terrorism is sparse—despite the salience of terrorism and other forms of politically motivated violence in the greater Middle East and North Africa region. How does Arab news cover "home-grown" or domestic terrorism in comparison to terrorist incidents that might be geographically distant? How does globalization influence the mediation of terrorism in Arab news?

This book addresses these lacunae and features a wide range of studies examining coverage of terrorism in Arab media. The case studies investigate technological, political, sociological, and legal infrastructures influencing the ways Arab media make sense of terrorism and international conflict events. The research contributes to the understanding of news frames as central to how terrorism news operates, constructs and thereby explains the social world through familiar master narratives drawn from the region’s culture and history.

Cytherean Sitings Between Heraclitus and Kittler

Josef Chytry

Cosmotheism retrieves the importance of a cosmic approach to reality through its revival of the heliocentric creed championed by Copernicus, Bruno and Kepler, through its critiques of historical patterns of politics and technology, and through its sponsorship of emancipatory thinkers, artists, "psychonauts," and cosmologists.

Edited by Virginia L. Lewis

This autobiographical narrative provides a unique personal account of the life of a Volga German under the Bolshevik Revolution and subsequent famine, agricultural collectivization, and Stalinist regime with its persecution of minorities including ethnic Germans in the Soviet Union. The fact that its author, master miller Heinrich Neuwirt (1902-1953), survived as long as he did is a testimony to the resourcefulness, determination to survive, and capacity to endure hardship he evinced as he was repeatedly ensnared in Stalin’s net, imprisoned, enslaved, and finally sent to the Russian front in a penal army. Neuwirt only managed to produce his account as a result of finding refuge in West Germany after the war, and although the manuscript made it to Volga German relatives in the United States, nothing came of publication efforts since it was written in German. The value of this manuscript lies in its first-person documentation of Volga German life under Stalin. German professor and literary scholar Virginia L. Lewis has rendered Neuwirt’s original German account into faithful English translation.
