Educational Technology Research & Development Special Issues Proposals

General Call for Special-Issue Proposals — ETR&D

General Call for Special-Issue Proposals — ETR&D

Educational Technology Research & Development (ETR&D) is soliciting Special-Issue proposals.

This call is open, and all submissions will be reviewed quarterly. The Research, Development, and Cultural and Regional Perspectives Editors will manage the proposal review process.

We invite your proposal which should contain: (a) Guest Editor(s)’ name(s), 2-page CV(s), and contact information; (b) Special-Issue title; (c) Special-Issue focus, scope, and rationale; (d) likely authors (they need not be confirmed in a proposal) and/or a process for recruiting authors who can deliver good papers; (e) a sample publication or a potential contribution if available; and (f) likely reviewers and/or a process for recruiting reviewers who can deliver good reviews.

A Special Issue should consist of 8 to 12 papers (between 5000 and 7000 words including references). The Guest Editor(s) should contribute an introductory piece to the Special-Issue.
Authors and Guest Editors need not be members of AECT (Association for Educational Communications & Technology; see https://www.aect.org), which sponsors ETR&D, or have previously published in ETR&D. With oversight from an Editor, Guest Editors manage the review process, which takes place according to standard peer-review practice within the editorial management system (www.edmgr.com/etrd). This includes selecting reviewers from the standard pool of reviewers and possibly adding new reviewers (who need to be established scholars with strong publication records), submitting feedback to authors, and making a final recommendation of acceptable papers for the Special-Issue to the ETR&D Editor. All Special-Issues are subject to the standard double-blind review process, and initial submissions should not contain any author-identifying information (includes using only “author” and year of publication for any citations and references involving any of the authors). ETR&D follows APA-6 guidelines.

The General Special-Issue Proposal review process is as follows:

  • The General Special-Issue proposals are submitted to the ETR&D Editors online at the address: https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4gYA9D7JN8cS4B
  • ETR&D Editors conduct an initial review
  • Editorial Board assesses and votes on the special-issue proposals
  • ETR&D Editors notify results of review
  • Timeline set for selected Special Issues
  • Guest Editor(s) begins Special-Issue tasks including writing the introductory piece for the Special Issue

The General Special-Issue papers can and should span the full range of research, development, and cultural/regional issues addressed in the journal. It is desirable to have papers that represent multiple perspectives from a variety of research groups. Each paper should not have been submitted elsewhere or previously published, and must represent an original contribution. Please submit your proposal whenever it is ready at the ETR&D General Call for Special-Issue Proposals (https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d4gYA9D7JN8cS4B)

The Editors, ETR&D

How Old is Too Old? Narratives about Becoming a Parent after 40

Dottir Press
How Old is Too Old?
Narratives about Becoming a Parent after 40
Co-editors: Vicki Breitbart and Nan Bauer-Maglin

We are seeking personal narratives that explore the realities of becoming and being a parent after the age of 40. There are many reasons why people are getting pregnant later or adopting children when they are over 40. With new definitions of marriage and family and an increase in reproductive technologies becoming a parent is a possibility for many more individuals over 40. While this group of parents is a growing phenomenon, the stigma against becoming a parent over 40, still exists.

We are looking for a range of proposals with topics that challenge the notions about who should become a parent and at what time in our lives. This book will be a collection of narratives written by those who have lived the experience. Their stories will highlight how the issue of age affects our opportunities to parent; some will add the discrimination felt due to race, class and sexual orientation to an already difficult situation. The stories will challenge gender roles, will confront the U.S. culture’s concepts about aging and the inequities about health care and opportunities for successful parenting.

All the narratives will be based on the life experiences of people who have faced some aspect of becoming an older parent, raising a child as an older parent, being in a relationship with a partner beginning parenting over 40, being raised by an older parent, or providing health care or services to people who want to be parents later in life.

We are interested in a variety of genres and approaches (dialogues, interviews, memoir, poetry, for example) and tones (serious to comic). They should be written in an accessible voice. We are committed to using gender-inclusive language in this collection by using words such as pregnant “person” or “older parent” when appropriate.

Please send us both a one-to-two-page description of what you are interested in writing by January 15. Include a few sentences about your previous writings and/or work. Please forward this call to friends and colleagues.

Feminist Collaborations: Intersectional and Transnational Teaching & Learning

Co-editors Isis Nusair and Barbara Shaw are soliciting abstracts for
inclusion in an anthology that focuses on feminist collaborations and the
radical interconnectedness between pedagogy, theory and practice. We seek
cutting edge work that scholars-teachers-activists are engaging with that
goes beyond valuing collaboration abstractly to engaging it and linking
theory to practice in building feminist/women’s/gender/ LGBTQ+ communities.
This project emerges out of three women’s, gender & sexuality curriculum
institutes funded through the Great Lakes College Association (GLCA) and in
which contributors drew on and returned to the work of Richa Nagar,
AnaLouise Keating, Chandra Mohanty, Jacquie Alexander, Ann Russo, and
others to think through feminist-queer collaborations and pedagogies. Our
call for abstracts invites scholars-educators-activists broadly to focus on
the connection between theory and practice in the process of teaching and
learning, and how to develop strategies for doing collaborative work in an
expansive field of study within and across institutional boundaries. The
aim of the anthology is to fill a vacuum in pedagogy especially on how to
teach intersectionality and transnationalism. It will focus on theorizing
pedagogical approaches and providing resources (media and visuals, syllabi
and assignments) for teaching introductory, theory & method, capstone and
special topics courses in an expanding field. This will help in faculty
development and building local, regional, and transnational connections
that imagine its purpose beyond institutionalization and actively
contributes to socio-political change.

Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Barbara Shaw ( bshaw@allegheny.edu )
and Isis Nusair ( nusairi@denison.edu ) by December 20, 2018. Further
inquiries are welcome. Publishers have expressed interest in the volume and
we will be crafting the book proposal based on selected abstracts.

Alexandria: The Journal of National and International Library and Information: themed issue on Library Exhibitions.

Alexandria: The Journal of National and International Library and Information Issues invites submissions for a themed issue on Library Exhibitions.

 

The issue of identifying library exhibitions as a special type of exhibition and curatorial activities in libraries as a special type of curating was first raised in the late 1980s, catching up with the changes in understanding art and museum curatorial discourses. However, even recent literature reviews on this topic are still brief and lead to the conclusions that, although practical guidance and theoretical studies on the purpose of the museum exhibition are an integral feature of museum studies, they are not usually directly relevant to exhibitions in a library context. Furthermore, the issues of exhibiting in the library environment have not been sufficiently identified and studied. To fill this gap in our knowledge, we are seeking articles on the theory and practice of exhibition work in all types of libraries – national, academic, public, community, school, special, etc. We will be interested to hear from information professionals, librarians, curators, interpretations officers, academics, etc. about their experience and practical issues. We also hope that colleagues will offer us conceptual and theoretical frameworks that could contribute to our broader understanding of the topic. 

 

A process of double peer review will be applied. Abstracts are due Tuesday 8 January 2019 and the full manuscript for selected articles will be due Friday 17 May 2019. The themed issue will be published in late 2019.

 

Abstracts should be no more than 1000 words.

 

Full articles should be between 4000 and 7500 words long.

Short communications should be no more than 3000 words long.

Author guidelines are available at https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/alexandria/journal202510#submission-guidelines

 

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

·         Library exhibitions vs museum or art exhibitions: theoretical and practical issues

·         Exhibition work in various types of libraries and their audiences

·         What is exhibition work in a library?

·         Book as an object/treasure

·         Physical vs digital

·         Partnerships and cooperation on exhibition projects

·         Art objects in the library environment

·         Library and exhibition audiences

·         Crowd-sourcing projects

·         Upskilling and training for exhibition projects

·         Lessons learned from exhibition projects in libraries

·         Benchmarking resources available for exhibitions in libraries with exhibitions in other sectors (museums, art)

·         Aims and purposes

·         Exhibition planning, delivery and promotion

·         International exhibition projects

·         Exhibition’s afterlife

 

This is not a prescriptive list: Alexandria wishes to present the widest possible range of papers relating to library exhibitions, including papers from the perspective of academic libraries, public libraries and other archiving institutions. All submissions make clear their collecting context and we particularly welcome submissions on new and emerging programmes within developing countries.

 

This themed issue will be edited by Ekaterina Rogatchevskaia (Lead Curator of Central and East European Collections at the British Library) and Susan Reed (Lead Curator of Germanic Studies at the British Library). Queries about the suitability of a topic should be addressed in the first instance to the Journal Editor, Monica Blake (info@blakeinformation.com).
