Call for Papers - Globalisation, Societies and Education
Call for Papers:
Globalisation, Societies and Education
New for 2003
By publishing the findings of empirical research and a range of analytic perspectives, Globalisation, Societies and Education will generate theoretical debate on the nature of globalisation and its complex and changing relationships with education and learning in local, national and transnational societies.
Globalisation, Societies and Education aims to fill the gap between the study of education and broader social, economic and political forces by analysing the complexities of globalisation. The journal will thereby seek to provide means for affecting, as well as reflecting the experiences, distribution, contributions and outcomes of education at all levels and in all settings.
Globalisation, Societies and Education will represent scholarly analysis carried out from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, philosophy, politics, geography, history, economics, management and comparative studies as applied to education and its related fields. We welcome articles drawing on empirical research, comparative and single system case studies and theoretical explorations in the broad area of the relationships between globalisation, societies and education.
In addition, Globalisation, Societies and Education seeks to encourage and include more innovative means for communicating information, ideas, debates and arguments on globalisation, education and societies. The journal will include interviews with prominent intellectuals, activists and leaders, website reviews, commentaries on debates and will offer opportunities for the expression of a range of viewpoints.
Topics of particular interest to the journal will include:
the effects of globalisation on education and training in particular countries, regions and institutions;
the subjects of these processes, including global (e.g. World Bank, OECD, UNESCO) and regional organisations (e.g. EU, APEC, NAFTA), and NGOs;
new technologies, new modes of e-learning and new identities;
globalisation, education and 'development';
globalisation and languages;
lifelong learning and the knowledge economy;
globalisation, education and cultural change;
changing labour markets, labour mobility, skills and education;
migration flows and education;
new institutional forms;
education as a global commodity/service;
social movements, labour movements and strategies for change.
