CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR
TRANSFORMATIONS: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy
Deadline: May 31, 2017 All Topics Welcome
Guest Editor: Jason Martinek
Transformations: The Journal of Inclusive Scholarship and Pedagogy opens the gates for this issue to jargon-free pedagogy-related articles on all topics. Transformations is a peer-reviewed journal which invites college teachers to take pedagogy seriously as a topic of scholarly articles. It is an interdisciplinary forum for pedagogical scholarship exploring intersections of identities, power, and social justice.Ordinarily, we publish themed issues, but this issue is open topic.
Submissions should explore strategies for teaching in the classroom and in non-traditional spaces (such as the media and public discourse). We welcome jargon-free essays from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. We seek articles (5,000-10,000 words) and short essays for the “Methods and Texts” section (1500-3000 words).
Transformations is available on JSTOR and Project Muse.
