CFP: Open Issue

Call For Submissions: Open Issue

[March 3, 2014] Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society is calling for submissions for an open-themed issue, to be published in Fall 2014. We are calling for all submissions that fit our general goals and guidelines. We privilege submissions that explicitly center decolonization, Indigeneity, educational practices, as well as engaging in scholarship that furthers discussions around decolonial possibilities.

As always, we are interested in papers that engage issues from the intersection of theory and practice, and privilege those submissions that challenge dominant definitions of valid knowledge, methodology, and scholarship.

Below are possible themes for submissions; they are not exhaustive and we encourage submissions that approach decolonization from other entry points. Decolonization prides itself on its undisciplinary focus and encourages submissions from all fields, disciplines, and global contexts.

  • Gender, sexuality and decolonization
  • Indigenous knowledges, decolonization and globalization
  • The role of education in decolonization
  • Intersections of racism and colonialism
  • Decolonial revolutionary imagination
  • Indigenous futurity
  • Social movements, collective action and decolonization
  • Land, territory and governance
  • Spirituality, spiritual resistance and the metaphysical

Articles, in order to be considered for the Fall 2014 issue, must be submitted at www.decolonization.org no later than April 25th, 2014.

Articles should follow our journal style guidelines, which can be found here. Scholarly articles are subject to a double-blind peer review and details can be found here. We also encourage other non peer-reviewed submissions, such as poetry, visual art, interviews, short written pieces, and book reviews that fall under our thematic and political scope.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at editors@decolonization.org
