The RF@AERA is co-sponsored by the Institute for Critical Education Studies:
As Paul Simon sings “that’s astute…why don’t we get together and call ourselves an institute.” So that’s what we’ve done. ICES supports studies within a critical education or critical pedagogy tradition, and maintains a network that conducts and circulates cultural, educational, or social research and discourse that are critical in method, scope, tone, and content.
ICES, Critical Education and Workplace defend the freedom, without restriction or censorship, to disseminate and publish reports of research, teaching, and service, and to express critical opinions about institutions or systems and their management. Co-Directors of ICES, co-Hosts of ICES and Workplace blogs, and co-Editors of these journals resist all efforts to limit the exercise of academic freedom and intellectual freedom, recognizing the right of criticism by authors or contributors.
Workplace was founded in 1998 by collective scholars in critical education promoting a new dignity in academic work. Contributions are aimed at higher education workplace activism and dialogue on all issues of academic labor. Workplace is a project of the Institute for Critical Education Studies, read more about the journal here.
Critical Education, founded in 2010, is an international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes articles that critically examine contemporary education contexts and practices. Critical Education is interested in theoretical and empirical research as well as articles that advance educational practices that challenge the existing state of affairs in society, schools, and informal education. Critical Education is a project of the Institute for Critical Education Studies, read more about the journal here.
Cultural Logic—which has been on-line since 1997—is a non-profit, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal that publishes essays, interviews, poetry, reviews (books, films, other media), etc. by writers working within the Marxist tradition. The editors will also print responses to work published in earlier issues.
The Rouge Forum thanks the UBC Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy for its support of RF@AERA 2012.
