Education Policy Analysis Archives (EPAA/AAPE) announces a call for papers for a special issue exploring education policy and methods in the recent and still oncoming era of post-truths. During this time, many research epistemologies, ontologies, processes, and policy discourses have lost their moorings in T/truth. This unsettling of T/truth, amidst continuously shifting and unstable intersections between policy and methodology, generates challenges and opportunities for scholars to rethink the purpose and value of their work. This special issue offers a space for scholars of education to grapple with education policy and methodology in an era of post-truth.

 

The Trump administration’s election and policy (un)making may mark an unprecedented time in U.S. and global history in which scientists must rethink the political ethics of their scholarly work. They might ask: Should scientists become activists for science and science policy? How should an activist scientist or politically passionate scholar function and act? What role(s) should scientists and research (now) play in educating a civil society and informing policy?
