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.

Articles should engage with the main themes and may include, but are not
limited to, topics such as

• social history
• revolution
• social ethics
• grassroots movements or projects
• global/local community involvement
• Utopic theories or movements
• practical applications of theory
• political activism
• disenfranchised/marginalised groups
• art and social engagement
• media representations of marginalised groups.

Submissions must be based on original research and should be between 4,000
and 6,000 words in length. Please ensure that you accompany your article
with an abstract of 200 to 250 words and a list of three to five keywords
to indicate the subject area of your article. For more information, a full
list of guidelines and our style sheet, visit www.gla.ac.uk/esharp.
Submissions and enquiries should be sent to submissions_at_esharp.org.uk .

The final deadline for submission of articles is Friday 14th March 2008.
 
We are currently celebrating the launch of Orality and Literacy, the tenth

Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to celebrate five years of the
