Watson, Vaughn W. M.; Marciano, Joanne E. – Journal of Literacy Research, 2023
In envisioning literacy at a crossroads, we ask what may be the potential of a different, intense, possible love, a love we may scarcely know and may yet discern--what we think of as a cosmic love, an explosive love. Such stance-taking in literacy research provokes new possibilities for research, teaching, and learning. We share brief narrative…

Two movies appeared at the same time in the summer of 2023, Oppenheimer and Barbie.

Vlieghe, Joris – Educational Theory, 2022
The background of the argument Joris Vlieghe develops in this article is the idea, proposed by neopragmatic scholars, that a way of aptly dealing with the societal issues that have come about in the wake of a global ecological crisis consists of engaging in practices of study.

Parker, Martin – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2023
My concern in this article is how the university might become more distributed, less concentrated in particular places and times, and more permeable to different sorts of interests.
