CFP: Wheelock International Journal of Children, Families, and Social Change

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 foc
us and outreach.  We offer the journal at no charge to readers and eagerly
invite contributions from thought leaders around the world.
