CFP: Designing, Teaching, Leading, & Theorizing Out-of-the-Box Student Travel (Domestic or Int’l; Edited Collection)
We seek essays of 3,000-5,000 words for an edited collection that explores unique and out-of-the-box faculty-led student travel, whether abroad or domestically. This book intends to argue for unique and innovative forms of undergraduate student travel, travel that eschews the sadly ubiquitous pre-packaged and overpriced program. We anticipate having three major sections: articles exploring the a) theory, b) implementation, and c) teaching (both in and outside the classroom, depending) of such journeys.

Mapping Meaning brings together artists, scientists and scholars to explore new modes of acting in the face of social and ecological crises. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, Mapping Meaning supports the creative work and scholarship of those working at edges and ecotones, who are pushing against traditional disciplinary boundaries. Since 2010 this multi-generational collective has been gathering together around experimental knowledge practices.
Ic þa wiht geseah
heo wæs wrætlice
Wundor wearð on wege
on weg feran
wæter wearð to bane
I saw the wight
It was splendidly,
The wonder was on the wave;
going on its way.
water became bone.
