Kevin R. Magill, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Secondary Education. His areas of interest and specialization include Teacher Education, Critical Theory/Pedagogy, Social Studies, Literacy, Reform/Policy Analysis, and Cultural Studies. Broadly, Dr. Magill's research examines the relationship between ontology, ideology, and pedagogy among pre and in-service teachers. He explores how these factors relate to the teaching of civics, social studies, and connect to community knowledge. His most recent scholarly work is a book published with Professor Arturo Rodriguez, Imagining Education: Beyond the Logic of Global Neoliberal Capitalism. The book is part of an effort to re-humanize society by generating dialogue, encouraging solidarity and providing analyses of power and avenues for agency in supporting life beyond the logic of the state and its implied structure, global neoliberal capitalism.
