CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Class, Religion, and Theology Unit and Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Unit

Call for Papers: 

We invite papers for a session focusing on the intersections between religion, culture, economics, and class in the struggle for/against public education. 2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of several important moments in the struggle over public education in the United States. These anniversaries include the Poor People’s Campaign (or Poor People’s March on Washington), the expansion and repression of the Black Panther Party, the founding of the Young Lords Organization in Chicago, and the student “blowouts” (walkouts) in Los Angeles public schools that catalyzed the Chicano movement. Though not an exhaustive list, we welcome papers on the following topics that address intersections of religion, culture, economics, and class in the struggle over U.S. public education:

o Privatization and racial re-segregation of schools
o Education governance
o School funding disparities
o Bilingualism
o Curricular conflicts
o Religious studies and practice in schools
o Undocumented youth education
o Community school models
o Causes/effects of achievement gaps
o Retention and graduation disparities
o The school-to-prison pipeline
