Dr. Magill's researchexplores two areas, first, how social studies teachers understand therelationship between teaching and civics and how their own ontologies and ideologiesinform their pedagogical practices. Second, he considers how and when teachershelp social studies students utilize cultural knowledge and critical inquiry todo the authentic work of civics. Dr. Magill's most recent scholarly worksinclude The primacy of relation: Social studies teachers and the praxis ofcritical pedagogy with Professor Cinthia Salinas and Critically civic teacherperception, posture and pedagogy: Negating civic archetypes published in Theoryand Research in Social Education and The Journal of Social Studies Researchrespectively.

Dr. Talbert refers to hisfield of research and teaching as Education As Democracy which integrates socialand cultural studies education into a focused discipline of qualitative inquiryexamining school and community stakeholder empowerment through activistengagement in political, economic, and social issues. Dr. Talbert's thirty-two(32) years of experience as an educator has allowed him to serve as a publichigh school teacher, education specialist and consultant for the TexasEducation Agency, Professor, Associate Dean, Department Chair, and GraduateProgram Director at such institutions as Sam Houston State University, Mississippi State University, The University of Houston, and Baylor University.Over his career in academia Dr. Talbert has published over forty (40)peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, presented more than eighty(80) peer-reviewed and invited research presentations, collaboratively obtainedin excess of $2.8 million in funded research, served as the chair andmethodologist for dozens of masters and doctoral theses and dissertations, co-editor of two academic journals, chair of several special interest groupsfor national professional organizations and a popular invited speaker andconsultant for education organizations and conferences, private corporations, and government entities where he has showcased his creative teaching, research, and public activism seminars. In 2013 Dr. Talbert decided that it had been fartoo long since he had been fully immersed in the real world of teaching. Aftera twenty-year absence from the public school classroom, he returned to a localhigh school where he taught world history to 166 10th-grade students. Hisexperiences have been captured in both academic journal and popular pressarticles and will be the subject of a book in the future.
