In the Classroom Submission Criteria

This is a forum for critical academics who understand the dialectics of a classroom is as important to challenge, as is the knowledge we produce outside the classroom. We encourage teachers to share resources and ideas for fostering critical thinking in the classroom, in line with our mission statement.

If you wish to propose a link or websource that you find helpful, please include a short write up (between 250-800 words) providing some  context as to how this resource can be used and to what ‘kinds’ of students (e.g. is this a source suitable for advanced research methodology seminars, or an introduction to sociology class).  We are hoping to develop this section to be much more dynamic, with suggested syllabii and pedagogical essays, but to do that we need the help of our community! Feel free to propose content that is in line with supporting a pedagogy that fosters a reflexive engagement with criminology.

Submissions should be typed and sent as a word document (docx. preferred) to classroom@uprootingcriminology.org.

Please allow six weeks for submissions to be considered for publication.

Art Submissions Criteria

Our site features at least four (4) visual panels in which we would like to promote the art of those who find inspiration in themes related to resistance, human rights and criminalization. If you would like your work to be featured on our site, with full attribution (including links to your social media), please contact the Visual Editor and describe what kind of art you would make available to us, and if possible any images which might help us decide. Please note: because we are a non-profit volunteer run collective, presently we are unable to offer more than our deepest gratitude, and hopefully a fairly substantial audience who will be exposed to your work.

Submissions can be made to visual@uprootingcriminology.org

Please allow four weeks for submissions to be considered for publication.
