In Ecocritical Perspectives in Teacher Education, the editors share a collection of chapters from diverse critical scholars in teacher education.

Teachers, and their students, are faced with demands that require teacher educators to work toward better preparing them to teach in a changed world—a world where diversity, human rights, sustainability, and democracy must be paramount. This text calls together teacher educators who address the complex ways that social and environmental injustices—like racism, sexism, classism, ableism, and speciesism—weave together to produce dangerous conditions for all life. The volume shares with readers a glimpse into alternatives possible for teaching that are situational, local, and in support of social justice and sustainability.

The politics of racism have returned with a bang. What was once a whisper is now a roar in the wake of public outrage over charges of police racism that claimed the lives of racialized minorities and Indigenous peoples. Yet confusion and uncertainty unsettle the challenge of clarifying the nature and scope of racism in general, systemic racism in particular, resulting in a glaring disconnect between public perceptions and lived experiences. Reckoning with Racism is themed around the prospect of problematizing the idea of racism as articulated, understood, and debated in response to new realities, emergent demands, and contested dynamics. A profoundly new racism world is evolving, one so fundamentally different from the iterations of the past, as to trigger a foundational shift in reconceptualizing how see, think and talk about and act on racism. Changing the conversation on racism must also acknowledge its uncanny knack of reinventing itself, while intersecting with other axes of identity and differentiation to amplify the inequalities of exclusion.
