David Kupferman, School of Teaching and Learning, served as the guest editor for the October 2018 special issue of Policy Futures in Education (volume 16, issue 7), a peer-reviewed journal published by SAGE. The special issue, titled “The Spaces of Pedagogy,” engages with various academic spaces to consider how to make sense of our present conditions and constraints associated with economic retrenchment and attacks on public institutions, those executed through real maneuvers and the wholesale policy “thought collective” of neoliberalism, while still being alert to potential openings that might affirm spaces that sustain and provoke educational and pedagogical possibilities.

Kupferman’s contributing article to the special issue, “Dangerous Liaisons: Metonymic Effects between School and Education,” about the uses, misuses, abuses, and conflations of the terms ‘school’ and ‘education’ in the social and political imaginaries, can be found here: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/1478210317753029
