[CFP]InterActions

Call for Papers: InterActions

InterActions is a peer-reviewed on-line journal committed to the
promotion of interdisciplinary and critical scholarship. Edited by
students in the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information
Studies, the journal brings together senior and emerging scholars,
activists, and professionals whose work covers a broad range of theory
and practice. InterActions is published twice yearly with funding
provided by the UCLA Graduate Students Association and the UCLA
Graduate School of Education & Information Studies.

Interdisciplinary Focus
Current work in disciplines as diverse as legal theory, literary
criticism, design, and technology studies exercises a profound impact
on educational and information studies research. At the same time, the
traditionally separate sub-disciplines within our fields, such as
sociology, curriculum, policy, psychological studies, systems design,
information literacy, and digital preservation are being connected by
researchers in new and innovative ways. Education and information
increasingly serve as the common ground where the social sciences and
the humanities can meet. InterActions provides a forum for these
interdisciplinary encounters.

Critical Perspectives
At the start of the 21st century, both education and the management of
information have become highly visible subjects of public debate.
Scholars are challenging traditional approaches and suggesting new
directions for research into the purposes, practices, and organization
of education and information institutions at all levels. InterActions
offers a timely and reasoned contribution to these debates by
providing critical commentary on current issues and promoting
perspectives in educational and information systems that can serve the
cause of social justice
.
Aims and Scope
InterActions seeks to promote alternative and liberatory visions,
methodologies and practices. We are particularly interested in work
that analyzes inequities and links research to larger social and
political ontexts, and we encourage contributions that utilize
critical frameworks in provocative and politically engaged ways.

Submissions may draw from traditional areas of inquiry within the
fields of education and information studies or from newer
interdisciplinary perspectives such as women’s studies, science and
technology studies, ethnic and cultural studies, film studies, queer
studies, disability studies, critical race theory, postcolonial
theory, critical pedagogy, postructuralism, etc. We encourage authors
to think creatively about what constitutes a “critical approach” and
to advance fresh and progressive analyses and research.

Submissions Guidelines
InterActions encourages practitioners, activists, and both established
and emerging scholars to submit manuscripts throughout the year.
Authors retain the copyright to material they publish in InterActions,
but the journal cannot re-publish material that has previously been
published elsewhere and does not accept papers that are simultaneously
submitted to other journals.

We welcome:
Articles (not to exceed 30 pages)
Review essays (10-20 pages)
Interviews (10-20 pages)
Book reviews (not to exceed 1100 words)
