Harvard Educational Review Special Issue: Popular Culture in Education
Call for Papers Date:
The Harvard Educational Review is planning to publish a Special Issue on Popular Culture in Education. The diversity of cultural engagements that learners bring to their education and the impact of mass media on learning and teaching have stimulated an increasing interest in the study of popular culture in education. In response to this growing attention, HER invites authors to submit articles that address popular culture as it relates to a diversity of learners and learning experiences in both formal and informal educational settings.
Our aim is to introduce the study of popular culture in education to new audiences and to invite authors to challenge current frameworks and approaches to this subject. Authors working on a range of topics and perspectives -- both domestic and international -- and engaging a diversity of methodologies are encouraged to submit their work. In addition, producers of popular culture, as well as practitioners and students who are engaged in or incorporate popular culture in their work, are invited to submit written and other artistic works that depict popular cultural styles. With this Special Issue, HER hopes to foster a dialogue among producers, consumers, and researchers of popular culture that will underscore its importance to education.
HER is a generalist journal that reaches a broad audience of educational practitioners, scholars, and policymakers. Our subscribers, as well as our contributors, represent fields as diverse as educational administration, teaching, psychology, history, philosophy, sociology, economics, government, and public policy.
Submissions to the HER Special Issue on Popular Culture in Education may take several forms, including but not limited to: research or theoretical manuscripts; book and essay reviews; reflective essays and practitioner narratives; works in popular cultural styles. HER accepts manuscripts of up to 45 pages. Please see our Guidelines for Authors or call our office at 617-495-3432.
Please send three copies of your submission to the address below.
