In Action:
Social Engagement, Empowerment and Change

The eleventh issue of eSharp will consider themes of social engagement,
empowerment, and change. We welcome articles which examine the social
implications and practical applications of various theories, as well as how
these may empower marginalised social groups or promote social change. In
keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the journal, the ideas of
engagement and empowerment within society can be interpreted broadly. We
encourage submissions from postgraduates in any area of the arts,
humanities, social sciences or education.

The recent death of Jean Baudrillard has stimulated an engagement with his

International Journal of Baudrillard Studies, his ideas continue to foster
productive discussion.
