Inaugural Issue: Call for Papers
Wheelock International Journal of Children, Families, and Social Change

The Wheelock International Journal of Children, Families, and Social Change (http://journal.wheelock.edu ) is an online, open-access, interdisciplinary forum for substantive conversations about understanding and improving the lives of children and families throughout the world. Our scope is unique and broad: peer-reviewed scholarly articles as well as essays by policy makers, advocates, educators, NGOs, and practitioners. We seek contributions that infuse intellectual rigor with moral and social purpose, and offer action strategies to address old problems and new opportunities. We aim for a broad and inclusive readership. Our goal: to enhance understanding and to foster change and progress.

The journal is currently accepting manuscripts for our inaugural issue from both established and emergent scholars and leaders. We publish a range of contributions, including case-studies, comparative analyses, advocacy, and policy articles. All submissions are carefully reviewed by relevant scholars and leaders in the field to maintain the highest standards of rigor and insight. Submissions to the Research & Scholarship section will be double-blind, peer-reviewed. We also welcome submissions from outside academia.
Relevant topics include education and schools, parenting and childrearing, globalization, gender, new pedagogies, work, service learning, art and music, violence, urbanism, health, media, technology, and more. We ask authors to formulate perspectives that are cutting-edge, and to write for a wide readership that expands beyond the traditional confines of any single discipline. We invite submissions that learn from the past, explore the present, and look ahead to a bright future. We welcome authors from a variety of disciplines: history, education, women’s studies, literature, psychology, feminism, family studies, religion, childhood studies, anthropology, sociology, social work, critical theory, political science, and development studies. The journal seeks to build intellectual bridges between scholarly disciplines and to bring together theory and practice, scholarship and activism, the academy and the “real world,” developed and developing nations. Our scope is global in focus and outreach.  We offer the journal at no charge to readers and eagerly invite contributions from thought leaders around the world.
