The Marginal Syllabus convenes and sustains conversations with educators about issues of equity in teaching, learning, and education. Through author and organizational partnerships, and by using the web annotation platform Hypothesis, the Marginal Syllabus fosters a participatory and open experiment in professional learning for educators eager to join critical conversations about equity and education.

The Marginal Syllabus embraces an intentional political and technical double-entendre; we partner with authors whose writing may be considered marginal – or contrary – to dominant education narratives, and our online conversations occur in the margins of texts using web annotation.
