The Journal on Teaching (JoT) is an annual peer-reviewed journal from the The Wabash Center. Each issue is theme driven and includes various forms of media—such as articles, poetry, visual art, videos of performing arts, and music—in service to critical reflection on teaching. As we aim to expand the traditional boundaries of scholarly writing, we remain focused on the scholarship of teaching in the fields of religious and theological studies, in both undergraduate and graduate educational contexts.

We are currently preparing for the publication of Volume 6 Issue 1; the issue’s theme is “Ecology" (March 2025). Ecology includes examinations of the relationship between living creatures and their physical surroundings. It’s a means of seeing and considering the politics of the Earth and annihilation, a framework through which to consider stewardship of our planet, a challenge to explore new epistemologies of dominion, creation, and the created. Ecology includes wider conversations about being and wholeness, living and inhabiting. How might thinking about one’s relationships with varying biospheres, lands, spaces, and environments help to enliven discussions of teaching and the teaching life in the expanding fields of religion and theology? What could be learned from organisms other than human? How do educators navigate varying grounds, both natural and artificial? The Wabash Center’s Journal on Teaching is looking for creative scholarship that examines themes of ecology. 


Future Themed Issues:

  • 2025 - “Ecology: Vol. 6.”
  • 2026 - "Spirit: Vol. 7."
  • 2027 - "Democracy: Vol. 8."
