CFP: Community Literacy Journal Call for Reviews (3/15/06; journal issue)
The peer-reviewed Community Literacy Journal seeks book and/or
multimedia reviews for our inaugural, Fall 2006, issue. We are
soliciting reviews of books and/or multimedia, along with book/
multimedia suggestions for review, that address any social, cultural,
rhetorical, or institutional aspects of community literacy.
We invite you to submit reviews that you feel should be included in
our budding conversation about literacy work that exists outside
mainstream educational and work institutions. It can be found in
institutionalized programs devoted to adult education or lifelong
learning or work with marginalized populations, but it can also be
found in more informal, ad hoc projects.
One goal of the journal, and of the review section in particular, is
to extend and expand beyond conventional book reviews to include more
visual and digital representations. By multimedia, we mean: digital
film, DVD, website, or other visual representations of communities
where literacy issues may be represented, discussed, displayed (just
to name a few examples).
Reviewers should include in their e-mail the following contact
Reviewer's full name
Publication information, including: date, location, and publisher
Book/Multimedia Review contributions should be 500-750 words in
length, but longer submissions will be accepted for reviews that
incorporate multiple titles.
Deadline: For Fall 2006 edition -- March 15, 2006
Format: MLA citation and endnote style
To submit reviews, suggestions for reviews, or request further
information, send a message to the Book/Multimedia Review Editor
