The International Journal of Critical Pedagogy

A New Journal and a New Collaboration

Daniel Chapman


This journal has been a long time coming. When Julie Garlen and
myself began the Curriculum Studies Summer Collaborative (CSSC)
we talked about creating a journal as an extension of the Collaborative.
But, we were both early in our careers and it felt overwhelming to take
on such a project. So, it was put on hold. The idea came back up a few
years ago when Marla Morris joined the planning council of the CSSC.
She argued, convincingly, that it was necessary to have more outlets
for Curriculum scholars to publish their work. Attaching the journal
to the Collaborative was a natural fit. We discussed what it might look
like and worked together to get the journal started.
