Sprinkle was originally conceived in 2007 as a collection of student works from the McGill Sexual Diversity Studies department. We hope to widen this scope a bit, but continue to produce a queer-positive, critical journal that seeks to challenge the normative experiences that are often privileged within our society. In this vein, we hope to draw attention to queer history and experience as well as other issues of gender and sexuality, subjects not often addressed within classroom curricula. This journal hopes to draw from and appeal to a wide audience, and people of numerous identities and backgrounds. Sprinkle aims to lend legitimacy to the thoughts and experiences of young people, and produce an engaging publication.

Dear Sprinkle community-
I wanted to write a quick post to give you a brief update on Sprinkle. The 2011 volume is in the process of being formatted and should be ready for publication in early January. We encountered some unanticipated delays this year as we had two guest co-editors working with a team of undergraduates based at two campuses in Wisconsin. As you recall, there was a lot going on in Wisconsin this year and the editors' involvement with the activism and strikes delayed some of the progress of this issue. The editorial board disbanded over the summer, so now I have stepped in to help put the finishing touches on another fine issue of this journal.

Dear Sprinkle readers:
I am writing to let you know that Sprinkle is currently on hiatus since I am currently on maternity leave and am unable to put in the time mentoring the student editors to ensure the publication of a high quality journal. If there are any professors out there who are interested in taking on this project as guest editor this year, they should send me an email expressing this interest to me at: email@example.com
Few days ago, news, news about the school of my country caught the attention of the most of leading media persons of my country. So the news reserved its space in almost electronic and print media of my country. According to it, in my country a school girl was punished by a teacher for speaking in her mother language.
Now in the global village, we do respect each other’s language, culture, traditions. Of course we should make our child adaptive for future. But I am asking myself that what is the mistake of that child? Are there certain rules, in my country that I will be punished by speaking in my mother language? By showing such attitudes by the so called teachers what will happen to the mind of child?
My ancestors feel proud of my country. Now the reality is different. We, the people of Nepal like to go to other countries. We feel proud to be third class citizen of so called developed countries. We are tagged as third world country and we are behaved like the beggars. Our country is indirectly under control of others.
So I analyzed that the education of my country is also totally under the control of other countries. When i visit to the traditional cities like Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, I get amazed by the engineering and architecture. We created our history but we lost our present that is what I feel. We are like a bank to deposit other assets. Or sometimes I feel that we are like the guinea pig to test.
Dear Sprinkle contributors and readers-
We are excited to announce that Volume 3 of Sprinkle is now available online! Please forward this link to your friends!
Gender, bullying, and harassment: Using queer pedagogy to disrupt discourses of power and popularity in school
This talk will address the problems of bullying and harassment in K-12 schools from a queer and poststructuralist feminist perspective. Dr. Meyer proposes a new paradigm for understanding bullying and harassing behaviors (including cyberbullying) in schools in order to suggest more effective solutions to improving students’ and teachers’ educational experiences. By introducing the principles inspired by queer theory into pedagogical discourses, we will be more able to reduce violent behaviors, drop-out rates, and improve the educational and professional opportunities for all members of diverse school communities.

I wanted to spread the news about an edited volume that was recently published. Below I'm pasting the preface, which describes the purpose of the book and provides an overview of the chapters. We are excited about the range of issues focused on consumer capitalism discussed in the book, and hope that educators interested in environmental education, consumerism, popular culture, and anti-consumption resistance will find this volume helpful!
Since we are expanding the editorial board this year we have decided to extend the deadline for applications until December 1. Please read the guidelines below and submit your application!
Sprinkle Editorial Board
According to the School Library Journal, Scholastic books is asking Lauren Myracle, the author of the new book "Luv Ya Bunches" to rewrite her story to exclude one of the character's parents because they are gay. The author is willing to clean up some of the "objectionable" language (words like "crap" and "sucks"), but refuses to de-gay the story since it reflects modern families. I'm so proud of Ms.
