Professional Transformations: Leadership Roles in Higher Ed for Humanities Professionals

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 9:51am
Catherine Thomas / Georgia Gwinnett College
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

This collection investigates how humanities teacher-scholars grapple with the opportunities and challenges of leadership roles, as well as connect them with their teaching and research endeavors. It offers the opportunity for a sustained and serious conversation about the multiple professional roles many humanities specialists play. It provides strategies for professional growth, sustenance, and satisfaction, while also meaningfully considering the relationship between our disciplinary areas of study, our academic training, and the lives we inhabit and aspire to. We seek research-inflected essays that address various types of institutions and leadership roles and that speak to lived experience in these multiple roles.

For a collection under contract with Lexington Books, we seek submissions that address both historical and theoretical perspectives of “Hallyu” that specifically intersect with issues regarding gender, sexuality, and stereotype. We anticipate that the edited volume will be cross-disciplinary and bring insights from international scholars. We welcome papers that address new research and cultural products that are relevant and current. Space for visuals is limited so non-textual elements should be included sparingly. Abstracts are due August 1, 2020 and acceptances will go out August 20.

Completed essays are due in Microsoft Word by December 1, 2020 and should be around 10,000 words in English.
