CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Education, critical pedagogy

full name / name of organization: 
Rebecca Shapiro

The following is a call for manuscripts for the Peter Lang Publishing
Education and New Literacies list.
One of the premier education publishing groups, Peter Lang Publishing is
looking for works that understand how new literacies and new ways of seeing
education are being invented -- as people from all walks of life, in
diverse sites, wrestle with new technologies, shifting values, changing
institutional forms and processes, and emerging structures characteristic
of postmodernity/New Times/the Global Informational Age. These texts aim to
explore these emerging domains and to create awareness of key trends and
features, translating them into educational consciousness and practice.
These texts should explore in depth and from a range of perspectives the
extent, nature, and implications of new literacies in global context,
challenging familiar ways of framing education, and what it means for
education to be powerful, effective, and enabling under current and
foreseeable conditions.
We wish to encourage and support new early-career authors as well as
established scholars.
We welcome articles which examine and engage with the current concerns of
education, educators, students, learning, especially how technology has
impacted education. Topics of particular interest are:

* critical pedagogy/ies
* literacy and technology
* education and disability
* the history of schools and schooling
* education and innovation
* education psychology
* multiculturalism, urban schooling
* education and the environment
* theory of play
* gender and education, particularly masculinity and adolescents

To send proposals or for more information and a full list of guidelines,
