The dossier “Teacher Subjectivities in Latin America: Perspectives and Analysis” aims to contribute to the production of knowledge on teacher subjectivities in Latin America. The different articles address teacher subjectivities through four axes: conceptual, contextual, initial teacher education, and teaching practices. At a time when the figure of the teacher is at the center of international and Latin American debate, it is essential to make visible perspectives that explain how teacher subjectivities manifest in relation to the social context, educational policies, their positioning, and pedagogical practices.
