Call for papers: "Teaching Inequality in an Age of Pluralism"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education.

Inequality is one of the greatest economic and social problems of our time, manifesting in numerous forms of individual hardships, economic stagnation, and weakened democratic processes and institutions. The primary objective of this special issue is to bring together pluralist work on teaching inequality in its many dimensions and manifestations; and, to promote further discussion and development of inequality-focused teaching strategies and materials. We seek papers featuring discussion of teaching inequality that employ alternative theoretical frameworks and/or innovative pedagogical strategies; that focus on global inequality or inequality in particular regional or national contexts; and that address the significance of the many economic, social, and demographic divisions of inequality.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Introductory/principles of economics courses
  • Intermediate or advanced economic theory classes
  • In courses where it is not unusual for it to be a topic (such as labour economics or economic development)
  • in courses where it is less often a topic (such as money and banking or environmental economics)
  • Contending or alternative theoretical/methodological perspectives (such as institutional, feminist, or Marxian political economic perspectives, etc.)
  • Active learning and/or experiential learning strategies
  • Community engagement strategies (such as service learning)
  • Measurement and research methods (qualitative as well as quantitative)
  • Developing nations
  • Practicing and/or teaching sustainability
  • Topics in a new context, not currently practiced
