The National Journal of Urban Education and Practice is seeking articles related to “Race and Urban Space: A Discourse on Power, Struggle, and Change” for the summer of 2012, Volume 6, Issue 1. Teaching in the 21st the century has brought on new and renewed discussions on the construction of race and how it interacts with urban spaces. We invite scholars to present research that weaves local, national, and international events and concepts. This journal is particularly concerned with reframing the discussion on race as a lens to magnify important issues relating to urban environments.
The editorial board welcomes original papers treating the theme from a wide range of disciplines, including education, history, law, philosophy, political science, sociology, criminal justice, social psychology, economics, anthropology, geography, journalism, communications, rhetoric, literature, educational studies, public health, and cultural studies.
Some topics that may be addressed include, but are not limited to, the following:
•Political Violence and Urban Environments
•Class Struggles and Urban Politics
•Literature from Urban Voices
•Race, Space, and Multimedia
•The Role of Race in Urban Political Spheres
•Educational Approaches to Race and Urban Spaces in the Classroom
