The spring 2021 Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR), guest edited by Jim Hewlett (Finger Lakes Community College-SUNY), will examine undergraduate research at community colleges. How is undergraduate research implemented at community and technical colleges? How is undergraduate research used to train the workforce? How have community colleges institutionalized undergraduate research?

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

The Poetics program at New College of California (ca. 1980-2000s) was a distinctly alien presence among graduate-level academic programs in North America.

deadline for submissions:

Climate change is the existential crisis of this century, affecting biodiversity, ecosystems, and all aspects of human life. This is a topic of enormous breadth, complexity, and particular urgency with respect to knowledge, innovation, collaboration, advocacy, and activism. The fall 2021 issue of the peer-reviewed Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore the broad and impactful work of undergraduate research in the context of climate change. Are there particular models of collaborative research vital for this work? Are there particular challenges associated with the interdisciplinary demands of the interrelated impacts of climate change?

"Digital Expressions Of The Self"

updated: 
Monday, April 27, 2020 - 1:24pm
National Institute Of Technology, Silchar
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 22, 2020

The National institute of Technology, Silchar is organizing a symposium on ''Digital Expressions of the Self'' during 7-8 Dec 2020. We are interested in how people experiment with creative expressions of the self. Constructing the self in the digital sphere may involve processes of experimentation that in turn allow one to experience the self in multiple ways. This is mediated of course by the apparatus of the digital-codes and algorithms. We are interested in the nuances of these processes and the aesthetics of the expressions. The deadline for abstract submission is 22 May. Details available here:

Call for Papers on the Histories and Philosophies of Carceral Education

The rates of incarceration worldwide continue to rise, prompting important questions about the legal and social circumstances moving so many people behind bars, and also about what happens to people during a period of imprisonment. Education in prison and of prisoners has a long history, marked by key moments in transformation as education in prison has shifted from some emphasis on religion, sin and redemption to economic rationalism.

Study and Scrutiny: Research on Young Adult Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The confluence of sports culture and sociopolitical issues has a long history. Memorable examples of athletes of yesteryear embracing activism include Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists against institutional racism, Muhammad Ali opposing the Vietnam War, and Billie Jean King fighting for gender equity. Contemporary examples include Colin Kaepernick protesting police violence against people of color and the U.S. women’s national soccer team charging U.S. Soccer with gender discrimination. Each example underscores the reality that athletes are so much more than the games they play. Many authors have honored this tradition through the fictional athletes they portray in contemporary sports-related young adult literature (YAL).
