R. I. Simon: A pedagogy of public possibility

Kent den Heyer

The influence of Roger Simon’s calling as a teacher extends in incalculable directions. For decades, his teaching at the University of Toronto questioned status quo practices found in activism, schools, museums, media, and other sites of public memory. Simon’s influence is as subtle in these multiple directions as it is profound in specific sites where his colleagues and former students now work.

In a special Canadian Social Studies issue we seek to honour Roger and his work with the focused attention, theoretical risk and radical possibility he practiced and encouraged. We do so by inviting contributions from those whose work takes up, extends, or is imbued with Roger’s influence as a teacher and as a scholar.

See the attachment for more details.

Submission deadline is February 17, 2014
