Potter, Troy – Journal of Literacy Research, 2022
Since the 1990s, there have been increasing calls to "queer" curricula in order to challenge gender and sexuality norms.

In processing the impact of the pandemic amidst other global crises, we found rereading Brandt and Clinton's "The Limits of the Local" article, published 20 years ago next year, to offer much, both theoretically and practically.
