CFP: Special issue of Knowledge Cultures on philosophy of education in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic

Deadline: May 31, 2020

Kia ora koutou,
In the critical educational moment that is the Covid-19 lockdown, we invite you to contribute to a special issue of Knowledge Cultures (https://addletonacademicpublishers.com/knowledge-cultures) on how we educators can explore and enact a philosophy of education that speaks to the care, critique and collective responsibility demanded by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Context
The Covid-19 pandemic profoundly affects the lives of humans, more-than-humans and the planet. The philosophy of pandemic is thus truly a philosophy for all peoples. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, it signals not only the human significance of themes like collective responsibility in self-isolation and social distancing, or the ethic of the other in the sacrifice of health workers or others in essential services, both of which exhibit care in an age of care-less capitalism, but also the ecological significance of trans-species viruses like Covid-19 that mark the “intrusion of Gaia” into the Anthropocene. It also serves as a public occasion for collective thought and action by educators and philosophers of education about how people are responding to the pandemic across the globe (central planning and panic-buying; scientific research and conspiracy theories; self-care and care for others, human and more-than-human; fear, anxiety, hope and love; binge-watching and baking).

Themes
literature and philosophy of viruses and plagues
philosophy of pandemic, (public) pedagogy of pandemic
self-interest and collective responsibility
ethic of the other, ethic of care
Anthropocene, “the intrusion of Gaia,” “response-ability”
conspiracy and science

Timeline
Please send individual or collective contributions of c.500, 1500 or 3000 words to the editors by 31 May 2020. (The articles from the special issue will form the basis of an edited volume to be published later in 2020.) I attach a sample paper from Michael A. Peters.
