This journal has aligned itself with this “reignition” agenda, in large part because its mission statement aligns with a commitment to strengthening the voices of English teachers, teacher educators and researchers worldwide, at a time when a range of policy pressures are posing a real threat to the professional identity of teachers and their ability to conduct their working lives in accord with their own ethical frameworks. This non-themed issue contains articles which have evolved from conference presentations (Comber and Cloonan, for example) or which have been developed by conference attendees (O’Mara and Dix, for example). Other articles vindicate the ETPC Board’s decision to make non-themed issues a regular occurrence, since they are a reminder of the fruitfulness of inviting our constituency to tell us about the thinking, practice and inquiry they have been engaging in.
