The Growing Gap: The Origin of "Theory & Research in Social Education"
Binford, Paul E.; Eisworth, Seth
Theory and Research in Social Education, v41 n4 p457-475 2013
This study focuses on a seminal moment in the history of the College and University Faculty Assembly (CUFA)--the founding of its voice, "Theory & Research in Social Education" ("TRSE"). This historical study uses archival documents to construct a narrative of the journal's origins. This publication was born during a contentious period of reform in the early 1970s. In spite of skepticism from both within and without CUFA, this fledgling assembly managed to create an independent journal. Several individuals made significant contributions toward "TRSE's" founding, including Cleo Cherryholmes, Jack Nelson, Anna Ochoa, and Jo Ann Sweeney. Their efforts culminated in a new forum dedicated to the publication of scholarly research in the social studies field.
