Call for Essays:

Special Edition


For a Special Edition of The Once and Future Classroom

The editors of TEAMS are soliciting essays for a special edition of The Once and Future Classroom focused on teaching the image of the Old Testament figure Abraham and/or the city of Jerusalem. We are interested in essays that address how teaching about Jerusalem or Abraham involves how Jews, Christians, and Muslims regarded each other in the Middle Ages, and their shared sacred scriptures, creation stories, prophets and loci. We are open to essays that

1) describe promising new classroom techniques, educational programs, curricula, and methods of evaluating instructional effectiveness;

2) accounts of recent trends in the teaching of the subject matter mentioned above;

any fields of research related to Medieval Studies;

3) lesson plans;

(4) critical reviews of software, audiovisual materials, textbooks, and other secondary works suitable for classroom use on the subject;


5) annotated bibliographies in the specific field relevant to the special issue.

Scholars from all disciplines are welcome to submit. The deadline has been extended to Sept. 1st. We would prefer complete submissions but will review shorter proposals as well.

Submissions should be emailed to
