Brave New Classrooms: Educational Democracy and the Internet

Although one of the most idealistic promises of the Internet has been its
democratic potential, teachers have increasingly encountered forces of
homogenization, standardization, censorship, hierarchy and corporatization.
This edited volume, tentatively titled Brave New Classrooms: Educational
Democracy and the Internet, is soliciting articles on political theory of
electronic education; commodification and marketing of electronic courses;
critiques of intellectual content and educational value of electronic
courses; privatization, emergent intellectual property regimes, the
knowledge commons, and university copyright practices for electronic course
content; experiential electronic teaching essays across a variety of
disciplines; integration of progressive and democratic education concepts
(e.g. Korczak, Freire) into electronic environments; restrictive
portalization (e.g. Blackboard) and learning access; redesign and transfer
of traditional courses to electronic formats; differential social access to
Internet learning resources; monolinguism and multilinguism in electronic
education; race, ethnicity, gender or sexuality in electronic course design;
dialogism and equality as values in electronic education; visions of
progressive education via computers and the Internet. International
perspectives especially welcome. Contact Joe Lockard, English Department,
Arizona State University, POB 870302, Tempe, AZ 85287-0302, or (Word attachments acceptable), with abstracts or draft
