Occasional Paper Series

The Occasional Paper Series is a forum for work that extends, deepens, and challenges the progressive legacy on which the College is built. The series seeks to promote discussion about what it means to educate in a democracy and to meet the interrelated demands of equity and excellence.

We are interested in research, practice, and policy-based papers from a broad array of theoretical perspectives. We encourage authors from within and outside the Bank Street community who employ either traditional or non-traditional representational strategies to submit their work for review.

This issue contains a range of powerful essays that examine patriotism as it relates to teaching and learning in schools and classrooms. A complex and often polarizing term with no straightforward definition, patriotism is explored through the lens of prominent educational scholars and is enhanced with a 2008 interview with musician Bruce Springsteen.
