Raveendran, Aswathy; Srivastava, Himanshu – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article is a response to María del Mar Aragón, José Antonio Acevedo-Díaz and Antonio García-Carmona's article, which investigated pre-service teachers' understandings of epistemic and non-epistemic aspects of the nature of science (NOS) based on the historical case study of Ignaz Semmelweis and childbed fever. We situate the study in…

Bazzul, Jesse; Tolbert, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article attempts to add to the conversation on equity and science education by arguing that activist work necessitates turning away from conservative fields of research that only forward the agenda of national governments/patriarchy/white supremacy/capital, and turning toward larger sociopolitical movements and non-dominant forms of knowledge…

Tesoriero, Gina – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this dialogue with Phillip A. Boda's "Conceptualizing the margins into science education praxis:disability as case in point," I would like to continue the conversation on an equity-focused graduate course meant to prepare pre-service educators to value and leverage diversity in the classroom. While Boda's analysis revealed that…

Pouliot, Chantal – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this article, I detail my involvement in sociopolitical conversations as a science education researcher. I present two of the controversies in which I have been involved in recent years: Metal dust from the Port of Québec (Quebec, Canada) and the Maillé case (the case of a researcher who has to hand over to a private company her research data…

Schenkel, Kathleen; Calabrese Barton, Angela; Tan, Edna; Nazar, Christina Restrepo; Flores, Marcos D. González D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Science for all has been touted as the primary path to equity in science education in the USA. We argue that without attention to the power imbalances that both create and sustain dominant views of science education; such an approach is not equity-oriented but rather science colonizing. In this manuscript, we draw upon critical views of justice to…

Vossoughi, Shirin; Shea, Molly – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this commentary, we wrestle with key ideas presented in Schenkel, Calabrese Barton, Tan, Nazar, and Flores' "Framing Equity through a Closer Examination of Critical Science Agency" and offer a series of theoretical and methodological attunements we view as germane to the visions of educational justice discussed therein. We begin by…

Szostkowski, Alaina; Upadhyay, Bhaskar – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this conceptual paper, we argue that social justice, morality, and healing must be at the core of an equity agenda for science education. When we view equity through this lens, teachers' and researchers' historically informed moral stances become just as important as the equitable distribution of teaching and learning resources and the…

Bunyamin, Muhammad Abd Hadi – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this forum, I explore how science teaching and learning as a moral act needs to be based in the context of a local community. I agree with Alaina Szostkowski and Bhaskar Upadhyay's assertions that if science teaching is to be equitable it needs to recognize the sociocultural variations between the Global South and the West. I also agree with…

Morales-Doyle, Daniel – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
As a response to Fortney and Atwood's "Teaching with understanding while teaching for understanding" (this issue), this paper challenges definitions of equity that do not explicitly deal with oppression and injustice. I argue that in order to address the problem of inequity at its roots, we must re-center the historical, political, and…
