Flores Carmona, Judith – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2018
I am an assistant professor at New Mexico State University; however, the path to getting to this position has been about crossing borders, about learning in and from the borderlands.

Rasheed, Shaireen – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Now more than ever the role of the other has been put into question and marginalized in a redefinition of an "American national self-protective identity" in the current post election climate.

McCorkle, William David – Journal of International Social Studies, 2018
The contentious modern immigration debate in the United States is often void of historical context and thus filled with fallacious narratives. To confront this trend, social studies educators should place the issues of modern immigration within their proper historical framework. This paper looks at three primary themes educators can explore: the…

Hjerm, Mikael; Johansson Sevä, Ingemar; Werner, Lena – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
Previous studies identify a relationship between education and anti-immigrant attitudes. There is, however, uncertainty regarding the underlying explanations linking education to attitudes.

Anwaruddin, Sardar M. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
Emotions are often used to categorize migrant and refugee populations, and to place them into particular subject positions. In much of the literature on the education of migrant and refugee students, emotions are viewed through a therapeutic lens. Against this backdrop, I argue that curriculum inquiries need to pay more sustained attention to how…

This article uses Foucault's concept of the care of the self to interrogate the accounts of ethical agency provided by professionals involved in the settlement of refugees, in a global and national context marked by fear of the stranger and the embrace of neoliberal political rationalities. An argument is made to "free the professional…
