  • Volume 7, issue 1

    • Authors: Catherine Scott
      Abstract: The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) field is greatly promoted as a career path for students in recent years, and the demand for individuals specializing in STEM disciplines is expected to rise. Often, when considering STEM, one thinks of careers related to medicine, laboratory settings, or the pure sciences. However, in examining only these aspects of STEM, we may errantly overlook the impacts that P-20 education may have in using STEM as a means for improving student lives. One unique aspect of STEM is its role in helping to improve our well being as individuals and society as a whole, not only through improvements in fields such as technology and medicine, but also as a stimulus for promoting improvements in the community and beyond. There are opportunities for STEM education to aid in social justice through examining local community issues, including environmental quality and access to health and nutritional services, among other topics. As noted by Webb and Barrera in this edition of Catalyst (2017), “The primary focus of education is to improve students’ lives by providing means to overcome the inequities of school and society, and it is the responsibility of teachers to see that this happens for every learner.” This issue of Catalyst aims to present a collection of works that examines the role of STEM education in aiding in these opportunities not only for the PK-12 classroom, but also in the college classroom and through pre-service educator training.

  • Toward a Theory of Teacher Education for Justice-Oriented STEM

    • Authors: Beth Leah Sondel 7722095 et al.
      Abstract: Among the multiple perspectives as to the focus of education policy, there has been much recent attention paid to both STEM and social justice education. While these approaches are often seen in opposition with each other, in this paper we explore the possibility of combining these two aims as we begin to develop a theory of teacher education for justice-oriented STEM education.

  • Social Justice Driven STEM Learning (STEMJ): A Curricular Framework for
           Teaching STEM in a Social Justice Driven, Urban, College Access Program.

    • Authors: Paul E. Madden et al.
      Abstract: This article presents the curricular framework for a social justice driven STEM curriculum (i.e., STEMJ) within an out-of-school time program for Boston Public high school students (i.e., College Bound) at Boston College. Starting with a discussion of the authors’ ideological positionality within critical social justice discourses, the authors share how Bronfenbrenner’s (1994) General Ecological Model provides a conceptual framework for operationalizing social justice inquiry with and through STEM. Positioning this curriculum within the College Bound program’s overall design gives readers a sense of how the program’s College and Career, Identity and Society, and STEMJ curriculums work in tandem to support the programs desired outcomes of students’ increased critical consciousness and college matriculation. Lessons learned and future directions are also included in acknowledgement of the necessity of ongoing reflection and adaptation to fulfill the program’s ambitious goals.

  • Providing Equal Opportunity to Learn Science for English Language
           Learners: The Role of Simulated Language Learner Experiences in Teacher
           Preparation

    • Authors: Angela W. Webb et al.
      Abstract: English language learners (ELLs) are the fastest growing student population in our nation’s public school systems; yet, preservice and inservice teachers are commonly underprepared to teach science effectively to this group of students. Though obviously inequitable, providing ELLs with poor or subpar science instruction denies them their civil right to equal opportunity to learn science. In this paper, we discuss simulation as a promising way to prepare preservice elementary teachers to plan and deliver quality science instruction and robust opportunities to learn to ELLs.

  • "Returning to the Root" of the Problem: Improving the Social Condition of
           African Americans through Science and Mathematics Education

    • Authors: Vanessa R. Pitts Bannister et al.
      Abstract: The underachievement and underrepresentation of African Americans in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines have been well documented. Efforts to improve the STEM education of African Americans continue to focus on relationships between teaching and learning and factors such as culture, race, power, class, learning preferences, cultural styles and language. Although this body of literature is deemed valuable, it fails to help STEM teacher educators and teachers critically assess other important factors such as pedagogy and curriculum. In this article, the authors argue that both pedagogy and curriculum should be centered on the social condition of African Americans – thus promoting mathematics learning and teaching that aim to improve African communities worldwide.

  • Prefigurative Politics vs. Party-Building in the Post-Soviet Context:
           Ideology and Resource Mobilization in Left-Radical Groups in Ukraine

    • Authors: Volodymyr Ishenko
      Abstract: I wrote this paper 10 years ago based on my MA thesis. Many things have changed since that time. The leftgroups mentioned in the article do not exist anymore. Some of their activists are still active politically but many arenot part of radical left politics any more. In addition, now I am more skeptical of the postmodern theories ofideology I tried to use in the paper. If I were writing a similar analysis now, I would try to develop a morematerialist and a more complex approach to ideologies and their effects on practical politics. However, the paperseems to be pointing to a much wider question than merely the problems of two small Kiev-based radical leftgroups. The radical left movement in Ukraine is slightly larger now, involving hundreds, not dozens, of activists, butit still lacks any strong organization and remains completely marginal politically. But it is not just a matter of theUkrainian left. The recent waves of popular struggles in Europe and in Arab countries persuasively showed howanarchist suspicion of disciplined organizations and strategy politically disarms the movements. If lacking strongpolitical organizations even massive mobilizations are at best able only to overthrow the old elite, while allowingthe seizing of power by traditional "opposition" parties, which in reality block any prospects for fundamentalpolitical and social change. SYRIZA in Greece and Podemos in Spain may push progressive movements into anunderstanding of the need for political representation. Of course, these new left parties will need not just electoralbut also political successes in implementing their programs in order to fix a shift in the contemporary radical lefttoward organized political strategy and away from an obsession with horizontal prefiguration.

  • ‘Capitalism A Nuh’ Wi Frien’. The formatting of farming into an
           asset, from financial speculation to international aid

    • Authors: Luigi Russi et al.
      Abstract: This paper deciphers the formatting of farming into an asset by tracking the modalities by which financial calculation is enabled across different sites of agency.The first focus of our analysis are commodity futures markets, which have witnessed a double spike in prices in 2008 and in 2012. In the paper, we look at these hikes as the outcome of endogenous dynamics, caused by the changing makeup of market participants after 2000, which turned futures markets into resources for hedging commodity index-linked derivative products.We subsequently analyse the increasing reliance on financial actors placed by public development agencies that channel funds through private equity initiatives to acquire and invest in farmland.To complete our analysis, we finally set our contribution alongside the alternative represented by food-sovereignty, which offers the promise of heeding to the needs engendered from within the peasant milieu, as opposed to subjugating it to extrinsic quantitative metrics.

  • Praxis with Self-Advocates: Exploring Participatory Video as Radical
           Incrementalism

    • Authors: Kathleen C. Sitter et al.
      Abstract: In this article, the authors report selected findings from a larger study where self-advocates from the disability rights movement created a series of short videos as part of a participatory research project. Self-advocates subsequently integrated these videos into a greater community organizing initiative. While the research process of this study has been published elsewhere, this piece will explore the idea of bridging participatory video, a collaborative research methodology, with community-based advocacy initiatives. The authors contend that this presents an opportunity for radical incrementalism in which to create a praxis driven predominantly by the voices on the margins versus the academic elite. In this article, a link to one of the videos is also included alongside participant reflections on the research process.

  • The Liberal As An Enemy Of Queer Justice

    • Authors: Craig Schamel
      Abstract: Liberalism as a historical mode of the political is the context in which the movement and ensuing struggle for queer justice emerged in most Western countries. The terminology, practices, tendencies, beliefs, ethics, laws, and patterns of political and social life which have been determined by this mode of the political, it is argued, are inimical to queer justice and render its achievement impossible. Liberalism as a mode of the political is approached from below, from knowledge gained in practical experience in queer groups which considered themselves revolutionary at least to some degree, and from the effects on such groups and on the lives of queer persons of liberal tropes and processes. The liberal mode of justice is contrasted to the revolutionary mode across five elements of the liberal idiom of gay and lesbian justice which have found their way into the thought and nomenclature of much of the gay leadership of the U.S., and even into queer organizations that purport to be radical or revolutionary. These idiomatic elements are, the liberal-religious idea of nonviolence as a means to justice, the idea that gay and lesbian persons have made great progress since 1969, the idea that academic liberalism in its various forms serves queer justice, the discourse of 'hate', and the discourse of rights. In this examination, elements of a specifically queer revolutionism are brought forth. The essay argues that queer persons must take up the revolutionary mode of justice as our political template, and it adopts a revolutionary style of conveyance of ideas which repudiates, in its rhetorical character and out of necessity, the disastrously false civility and false objectivity of liberal discourse, adopting the revolutionarily appropriate character of a manifesto.

  • Queering the Reform/Revolution Dyad: A Spatiotemporal Dialectic

    • Authors: Raihan Sharif
      Abstract: All ages deal with the debate between reform and revolution in the contexts of theirdistinctive challenges, problems, and prospects. While reflecting on today’s sociopoliticalrealities in the U.S., this paper identifies a theoretical stagnancy in academiathat deters any radical praxis for revolution. Addressing some key theoretical stanceswithin the reform/revolution dyad, the paper argues that any criticism of “revolution ina linear future” is no easy approval for “reform in a static present” either. Also,replacing the “apocalyptic future” with the “here and now” of the progressive presentis perhaps inadequate without critically reflecting on the “quality” of the “present”.This paper does not recommend any specific prescriptive means but outlines aspeculative prospect of “here and now” for revolution. It critiques theoretical stancesof a number of postcolonial and poststructuralist thinkers and argues that thesestances eventually get appropriated within the hegemonic reform-based justiceunderpinning neoliberalism. It argues that using the work of Henry Lefebvre, DavidHarvey, and Doreen Massey, a spatiotemporal dialectic for revolution can bedeveloped which in turn also embraces revolutionary visions of Alain Badiou. Thepaper explains how this dialectic reveals an inadequacy in the politics of reform andadjustment within theories of James C Scott, Michel de Certeau, Homi K Bhabha,Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze. It shows how liberal justice discourses thatroutinely promote reform in an attempt to misguide revolutionary potentials manage to find a comfort zone in the politics of difference. Specifically, the paper invests in theinterstice between two types of theories to queer the longstanding reform-revolutiondyad.

  • Terror in the French Republic: Competing Performances of Social Justice

    • Authors: adam yaghi
      Abstract: Major news anchors reported the action second by second. They replayed video footage of twohooded gunmen executing a French police officer followed by reports of other connected attacks andimages of deployed French counter-terrorism units. The unfolding drama quickly created an atmosphereof panic, even in places far away from where the incident of Charlie Hebdo took place. The sequence ofevents also gave birth to a global support movement. Among the vast crowds coming out in French cities,international state high officials marched alongside President François Hollande ostensibly to defendfreedom of speech, express their unity in the fight against Islamic radicalism and demonstrate readiness tocrack down on global jihad. This fast-paced sequence of events left little room for reason or reflectivethinking in France and other locations in Europe. Emotions, understandably, were riding high. After all,the hideous attacks sought more than just reaping the lives of the cartoonists for lampooning Islam,mocking its symbols, and ridiculing its followers. The attacks on Charlie Hebdo meant to execute amemorable “performance of terror,” to send a strong message to the French Republic and the Judeo-Christian Western world. Convinced that they, righteous and pious, are ordained by God to rid the worldof the blasphemous West, the attackers understood their own struggle in global and religious terms, aclash of civilizations and a war between good and evil.

    • Authors: Craig R. Schamel
      Abstract: When the theme for this issue of Catalyst was conceived, it was imagined that contributions mightpresent both defenses and critiques of liberal justice, that is, one might say, that these contributions wouldeither promote reformist or revolutionary modes of justice. Instead, all of the submissions took a fairlydecisive position of critique of liberal modes of justice, though they are not necessarily in agreementabout what constitutes a revolutionary mode of social justice, and they do not always adopt the term'revolution' itself as a description of the critique they present and the direction in which they point.

  • Roads To Reconciliation: Volume 2, Issue 1 - Full Issue for download

    • Authors: Rachael E. Gabriel
      Abstract: When the theme for this issue of Catalyst was conceived, it was imagined that contributions might present both defenses and critiques of liberal justice, that is, one might say, that these contributions would either promote reformist or revolutionary modes of justice. Instead, all of the submissions took a fairly decisive position of critique of liberal modes of justice, though they are not necessarily in agreement about what constitutes a revolutionary mode of social justice, and they do not always adopt the term 'revolution' itself as a description of the critique they present and the direction in which they point. Not only did the spirit and letter of the submissions for this issue effectively endorse revolutionary modes of social justice, but these works hit the ground running, with most immediately moving into attempts to describe and help create a strategy of practice for a social justice which could be called revolutionary, and which rather decisively rejects liberalism and in some fundamental ways, conveying in spirit a sense of impatience even with justice as it is conceived and carried out by liberal systems. It is this spirit of the authors of these works and the feeling of eagerness to describe and participate in the effectuation of a revolutionary praxis which they convey, and also on the idea of liberalism as an ideology, on which I focus briefly in this introduction.

  • A NEOLIBERAL CRITIQUE: CONCEPTUALIZING THE PURPOSE OF SCHOOL

    • Authors: Jennifer DeSaxe
      Abstract: Throughout this manuscript, I discuss the current trend of neoliberalism, privatization, and deregulation within our educational communities and public schools. Throughout this analysis, I examine the ways in which many neoliberal policies aim to takeover public education through such consequences as false meritocracy, high stakes testing, and drastic funding inequities. I argue that we must seek to understand and challenge such policies in order to speak out against ideologies and “reform” movements that frame the purpose of schooling in ways that go against conceptualizing and actualizing it in a democratic and just manner.

  • WHAT I SHOULDA, COULDA, WOULDA LEARNED IN SCIENCE CLASS”: BLACK AMERICAN
           BOYS’ NARRATIVES OF PAST SCIENCE TEACHERS AND VISIONS FOR A CULTURALLY
           RESPONSIVE SCIENCE TEACHER

    • Authors: Althea Hoard
      Abstract: This study follows three Black American, high school boys who participated in a “Men in STEM” book club in an urban school in New York City. Through narrative analysis, the boys describe their vision for a culturally responsive science teacher and connections are made between the boys’ experiences with science teachers and interest in STEM careers. 20 10th grade Black American boys joined the “Men in STEM” book club and three participants are highlighted due to their differing interests in pursuing a STEM major in college. By triangulation of semi-structured interviews, two open-ended questionnaires, and researcher field notes, four themes emerged. Black American boys in this study call for S4 teachers - science teachers who:

  • REFLECTIONS ON MY WHITE PRIVILEGE AND UNDERSTANDING IT: THOUGHTS FROM A
           TEACHER EDUCATOR

    • Authors: Todd Sloan Cherner
      Abstract: The topic of White Privilege continually appears in a variety of contexts. As one of those contexts is teacher education, the author reflects on how he came to understand his White Privilege in this article. To frame his reflection, the author first unpacks the term “White Privilege” by drawing from other scholarly works and then explains how he came to understand its meaning. The author put forward his reflections as a way of sharing his experiences, in hopes they may help other White educators become aware of their own White Privilege and begin living socially conscious lives.

  • MOVING TOWARD A MORE SOCIALLY JUST CLASSROOM THROUGH TEACHER PREPARATION
           FOR INCLUSION

    • Authors: Grace Blum et al.
      Abstract: The current literature in teacher education for social justice fails to adequately address issues of disability within the equity discourse. In this paper, the authors advocate for a model of social justice teacher education that includes disability as part of the definition of marginalized groups by proposing the use of Response to Intervention (RTI) as a method for promoting inclusion into the social justice-oriented teacher preparation context.

  • WHITE PRIVILEGE AND SOCIAL STUDIES PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS

    • Authors: Kristal Curry
      Abstract: This article explores the dynamic of the Silenced Dialogue within a graduate-level, teacher preparation diversity course by analyzing student-created reflections about Peggy McIntosh’s article regarding White privilege. The paper compares themes that emerged in White vs. Black student reflections, male vs. female student reflections, and those of students preparing to teach social studies compared to those preparing to teach in other disciplines available in the program. Social studies candidates had complex responses to race. They seemed to feel comfortable with the topic, but were also world-weary and likely to dismiss current racism as being less than it used to be, and therefore, not much of a current issue. As compared to candidates in other disciplines who were surprised by the readings on White Privilege and felt challenged to act on their new understandings, social studies candidates were more likely to place current race relations in a historical context and emphasize the improvements made in recent decades, rather than changes that may still need to be made. This paper concludes with the problematic implications of social studies teachers who see racism as real, but largely a problem of the past.
