Class is in session! This spring, Anthropology News will explore pedagogy in its many forms and settings. From ungrading to decolonizing classrooms and syllabi to building an equitable and effective online pedagogy to podcasts as teaching tools, we are looking for stories that envision how anthropology and education might benefit from big, optimistic, and critical ideas.  

Whether you have a tale about training people in a business, government, or nonprofit context, a story about creating educational resources for a public science center or museum exhibit, or are developing innovative ways of teaching and assessing learning in school or higher education we invite you to share your ideas for our PEDAGOGY issue.  

We are interested in pitches that approach pedagogy from an engaging perspective in the form of feature essays or visual essays. Anthropologists working in all settings, students, and professor-student or multigenerational author teams all welcome. 

Please send a 250-word pitch that outlines the story or argument of your piece, and a 50-word author bio to [email protected] by December 21, 2020. If proposing a photo or graphic essay, include one or two images or illustrations. 

First drafts will be due by February 15 and will go through a developmental edit with the AN editor. Feature essays are 1,600–2,000 words. Photo essays comprise6–8 high resolution images and a 600-word introductory essay. Final articles will publish in the March/April print magazine and on the  AN website.
