What questions about teaching does the Rachel Dolezal story raise for you? What assumptions do your students make about you based on your body? How does difference (race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, disability, sexuality, etc.) affect what you teach? How you teach?

These questions and more are asked in today's new blog post by Nyasha Junior, Ph.D, Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible at Temple University Department of Religion.

Summer is that time in the teaching year when faculty focus on their research and writing. Some view it as a time for adding a book or two on pedagogy to their summer reading list.

We have a large volume of titles topically arranged for faculty to consider:

New Blog Post! Dr. Eric Barreto on "Framing the Academic Year"

"...I will remember this academic year due to the opening frame of Ferguson and the closing frame of the unrest we have witnessed recently in Baltimore. Questions of race and justice have been particularly inescapable over the last year. The dark legacies of a history punctuated by the cruelty of slavery and the dehumanization of Jim Crow have repeatedly shaped my teaching in both visible and invisible ways, particularly this last year. These cases and protests have been ever present in my thinking, my teaching, my writing, and my service to my institution and the wider church."

New blog post on our blog for Theological School Deans!

"Some jobs are just more challenging due to the complexity of the work and the span of responsibility. But, here are eleven inviolable scientific laws that (playfully and unscientifically) may help explain why the job of the academic dean is so hard (or, why it's almost impossible to get things done)."

New blog post today on our "Stories from the Front of the Classroom" blog. Dr. Roger Nam's final individual blog entry.

"Recently, I have become more aware of the “big” season: that is, the season of our academic careers from PhD to retirement. Most of us in Wabash Nation are in community with colleagues at every point of this academic trajectory. I have a friend defending her doctoral dissertation in June. I have another friend retiring from academe in two weeks. Many of us will eventually experience the hopes and fears of both milestones."
