Intersections: Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions for Spring 2018 Issue
Deadline: February 1, 2018
Sponsored by the University of New Mexico’s Department of Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies, Intersections: Critical Issues in Education is an online, peer-reviewed, open access academic journal. We seek to deepen understanding of how race, class, gender, sexuality, exceptionalities, power, well-being, and other subjectivities play out in educational settings as a means of advancing social justice for all people. Intersections serves as a forum for diverse voices and perspectives reflecting a variety of disciplines, focusing on work that interrogates, disrupts, and challenges oppression. We welcome a range of materials, including academic papers, personal perspectives, and other innovative forms of scholarship that may speak to an audience beyond academia.
We seek original creative or scholarly submissions that examine critical issues in education, including but not limited to schooling and society, language diversity, literacy and culture, curriculum and practice, subjectivities/identities, policy and reform, spirituality, health and well-being, multimedia and digital technologies, globalization, health, gender, critical literacy, race, power, and (dis) ability studies. We welcome submissions in a variety of formats, from empirical articles and position papers to memoirs and reviews of literature; essays; academic commentaries; interviews; book and media reviews. Submissions in other genres are also encouraged, including well-crafted poetry, artistic works, fiction, documentary film or short film, video of an event with scholarly commentary, scholarly conversations (print, audio, performance), and more. For more information, contact us at intersections@unm.edu or via

New Educational Foundations

Colleagues,

I want to let you know about the pro bono foundations of ed website that SPE members Ed Rozycki and I operate. It deals with a wide variety of educational related issues and now attracts over 3 million visitors a year. You can visit and poke around by clicking on this link: http://www.newfoundations.com. Feel free to submit articles or links for inclusion.

You also might want to take a look at the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations — an electronic ed journal that four colleagues and I founded six months back. We intend it to be a “…forum for independent-minded teachers, professors, administrators, and researchers who prefer intelligent practice over merely implementing the will of others. We fear that “professionals” who just do what they are told may as easily serve a tyranny as a democracy; and, if they’re good enough at it, it becomes hard to tell the difference. There are alternatives to this scenario, and NEF will explore those alternatives.”

You might like to submit something for inclusion.To date we’ve had more than 12,000 downloads of our first two issues and now are looking for contributions for our third issue. Maybe you would like to add your voice. If so, please send your manuscript for review to: clabaugh@comcast.net. We do not favor any particular ideology. As a matter of fact, we intend that this journal be trans-ideological. Our emphasis is on ideas and dialogue.

Here are links to the first and second issues of New Educational Foundations.
