Call for Papers- Journal of Ethnic and Cultural Studies Journal of Ethnic and Cultural Studies (JECS) welcomes original research articles and book reviews for its next issue.
The JECS is a biannual and peer-reviewed journal published in June and December.
In the universities where I have taught ethnic and gender studies courses very few of my students are majors.
Most students come from a wide variety of other departments and enroll as an elective because they are concerned with social issues and want to understand them deeper in order to make change in their worlds, reflecting the original mission of the field.

Teaching a mixed skill level class is difficult but the biggest challenge to teaching ethnic and gender studies is getting past the problematic assumptions about the field that students can arrive with.
My course may be a student’s first exposure to humanities or social science as well as the first time they’ve encountered perspectives by authors who are not straight cis white men.
