Editorial Development Group – EDG

To mentor emerging scholars and develop their knowledge and skills involved in the processes of editing journals, including peer review, Educational Philosophy and Theory (EPAT) established an Editorial Development Group of interns that has been running for several years. Meetings have been held at PESA conferences and via a private FaceBook group. The current EDG leaders are Sonja Arndt, Carl Mika & Ruth Irwin.

The Editorial Development Group is an academic editorial internship group. Its aim is to explore new modes of academic publication and engagement, while building up the base of editorial expertise in PESA, drawing on the support of the EPAT Editorial Board, the Editors Collective and PESA’s broader membership.

To benefit from being part of EDG, we ask that members belong to PESA, so if you are interested in joining EDG, please contact Sonja Arndt to request further information about plans, ideas, and the next zoom discussion.

Indigenous Philosophy Group IPG

Within PESA and EPAT, and Indigenous Philosophy Group (IPG) has been established for several years now. Check out the article by Georgina Tuari Stewart, What does ‘indigenous’ mean, for me? that talks about IPG and the concept of ‘indigenous.’

Currently, Carl Mika (Maori – Tuhourangi) leads the Indigenous Philosophy Group. We welcome Indigenous scholars from any country to participate in Indigenous philosophy in its many, diverse forms. Looking forward to working with you!

Women in Philosophy of Education Group

Women members of PESA have been meeting at different times and at PESA conferences over several years now – contact  Liz Jackson & Nesta Devine – both Past Presidents of PESA or Cathy Legg.
