    • Abstract:
      This short article responds to Hilton Kelly's 2018 Presidential Address to the American Educational Studies Association (AESA). Although applauding Kelly's provocative call for a moratorium on publishing in the field of educational studies, we caution that his call to (in)action is framed in overly technical and individualistic terms. In response, we question Kelly's focus on social significance, and aim to situate the problem he identifies in the more specific socio-political context of neoliberalism. Acknowledging the promise of a moratorium, we ask readers to consider the call to moratorium seriously, but reframed as a task of organized refusal rather than solitary reflection.
